The Legacy of Hazel Johnson

2:00 PM – 3:00 PM


Join us for a program about Chicago activist Hazel Johnson, "Mother of Environmental Justice." Cheryl Johnson will speak about her mother's life and the legacy she left behind as an environmental justice activist. Her stories will be accompanied with archival photographs and manuscripts from the People for Community Recovery Archives, an organization founded by Hazel Johnson to fight environmental racism on Chicago's heavily polluted southeast side.

This Women's History Month program is co-sponsored by the Chicago Women's History Center.
