Migrations & Meditations: The Politics Of Movement
Thursday, March 23 at 7:30pm
Richard M. and Maggie C. Daley Building, Lower Level 105 14 E Jackson Blvd
For many, Chicago was not always “home.” In the early twentieth century, African Americans seeking to leave the racial climate of the American South behind and Mexican migrants seeking work far north of the border joined European migrants new to the city. Today, one out of seven residents of the state of Illinois is an immigrant; almost 34% of those migrants, who come from all over the world, live in Chicago.

Theatre capacity is 156; seating is available first come, first

WE ALL WE GOT

Carlos Javier Ortiz
(USA, 2015, 9 mins), Colorado Premiere

A stunning, heartbreaking, visual poem. In the wake of the Black Lives Matter movement and the country’s recent focus on youth violence, police brutality, and marginalized communities, We All We Got is an elegy of urban America, and an intimate portrait of the people affected by gun violence in Chicago.
