“The Business of the Block”
In conjunction with the exhibition, “KKK – Kin Killing Kin,” we present a daring discussion about the “money machine” driving black gangs in Chicago. During this panel and open forum, you’ll not only hear from scholars who have studied the history and evolution of Chicago gangs and their street enterprises, but you will also gain insight from community leaders and former members of some of Chicago’s most notorious sets who will speak about the allure of gang life for financial gain and how we can intercept its draw by introducing youth to creative business and entrepreneurial endeavors.
Dr. Carol Adams, President and CEO of The Dusable Museum of African American HIstory speaks about “KKK — Kin Killin’ Kin” opening at the museum.
This project is partially supported by a CityArts Grant from the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs & Special Events
