The third installment of the Bronzeville Summer Nights series hit the neighborhood Aug. 20 with trolley rides, in-store specials, and live entertainment along 43rd Street.
Throughout Chicago history, Bronzeville has been a hub for African-American music, literature, fine art, and theater. This series is tied to that history, incorporating the area’s contemporary initiatives.
“It feels like I’m being a part of history,” said K’Lah Jenay Jackson, one of the night’s performers. “It’s a really beautiful thing to draw people into the community. Hopefully, we can share this experience with our young and grow from that as a community together.”
