Description

Chicago is frequently thought of as an immigrant hub in the popular imagination. While it certainly continues to see new arrivals from distant and not-so-distant lands, some groups have been more welcome than others. In this talk, history and urbanologist Max Grinnell will look at how New Englanders, Germans, Irish, and African Americans became a part of this rapidly growing metropolis.

This talk is presented by urbanologist and Chicago history expert Max Grinnell
