History Speaks - A Time of Pandemic and Unrest: Chicago 1918-1919

Sunday, January 17, 2021

The Spanish flu ravaged the world in 1918-1919. Chicago lost more than 20,000 residents during the epidemic. Those who survived confronted a city in crisis: high unemployment and labor conflict spurred political unrest.

The Spanish flu ravaged the world in 1918-1919. Chicago lost more than 20,000 residents during the epidemic. Those who survived confronted a city in crisis: high unemployment and labor conflict spurred political unrest. Those factors exacerbated the growing racial tensions that erupted in the July 1919 Race Riot. This lecture will be led by Dr. Ann Keating, Dr. C. Frederick Toenniges Professor of History at North Central College. 

This lecture is on Zoom, and pre-registration is required. Registrants will receive a Zoom invitation with information on how to access the virtual lecture prior to the event. Please note: only 100 spaces are available per lecture on a first-come, first-served basis.
