What was going on at the time Bedrock Faith took place? Depending on how long you’ve been in Chicago it might seem like yesterday or you might be like “Wait…I wasn’t even born then”. Max Grinnell, urbanologist, raconteur, and historian will take you through some of the breaking news headlines from the day torn from the Tribune, the Defender, and the Sun-Times to look at what Chicagoans were talking about.
As an urbanologist, geographer, historian, and professor, Max Grinnell finds his purpose in describing, critiquing, and analyzing the urban condition. He’s an expert on urban design, planning, public art, the creative economy, and the history of cities, and has written several books including Hyde Park, Illinois and 24 Great Walks in Chicago.
