A Tale of Two Streets: Race and Residence on the Southside

4:00 PM – 5:00 PM


Discover how two streets have positively transformed on Chicago’s Southside by joining Timothy Thurlow, a docent of the Chicago Architecture Center and Frank Lloyd Wright's Robie House, for an evening of storytelling.

Through research and pictures along 51st to 47th streets, you’ll learn how Drexel became the most exclusive street in the 1870’s, but later was on the frontline of racial conflict in the 1920’s.
