Kenilworth Union’s Racial Justice Committee

An episode of Shame Of Chicago will be shown Thursday, November 2, 7 p.m. at The Joseph Sears School in Kenilworth.

Shame of Chicago is a five-part documentary revealing the true stories behind how Chicago and its suburbs devised the most sweeping system of racially segregated communities; and how these policies diminished the lives of generations of Black families creating the vast wealth gap that persists to this day.  Episode 3, “The Color Tax: Origins of the Modern Day Wealth Gap” will be shown.

After the screening, there will be a panel discussion with film-maker Bruce Orenstein.  Register below
