A year-long workshop series for twelve elementary and secondary school teachers on social, political, literary, and artistic developments in Chicago's African American community from 1934 to1954.

"Destination Freedom: Black Chicago, 1934-1954" convenes elementary and secondary school teachers, scholars, and archivists in a study of the economic, political, social, and cultural renaissance that took root in the city in the mid-20th century. Through seminars and research sesions in the holdings of the renowed Vivian Harsh Research Collection, partiicpants will ask such questions of the sources as "How and why did the struggle for freedom, equality, and democracy manifest itself in the African American community during this time?" and "What was the significance and impact on the nation of the activities that took place in Black Chicago, 1934-1954 -- and how does it help us understand the second half of the 20th century?"
