Explore what peace means in the past, present, and future.

Featured Exhibit: The Chicago Freedom Movement: MLK in Color

June 3 - July 30, 2022

This entire photography exhibit includes contemporary photographs reminding us that we still have a long way to go before we achieve what Dr. King fought for and what we are fighting for now -neighborhoods with opportunities to work, shop, and play safely, where everyone is treated fairly and without prejudice or hurt in their search for a home.
