This spring, ten portraits from Rob Shetterly’s remarkable collection, “Americans Who Tell the Truth” will be on display at Jane Addams Hull-House Museum. The Public Square will celebrate its 10 year anniversary with a public performance of speeches and writings by these 10 truth-tellers including Martin Luther King, Ella Baker, Pete Seeger, Grace Lee Boggs, and Bill Ayers. Their words will be brought to life with dramatic readings performed by local artists, educators and activists. Save the date for “10 portraits, 10 voices, 10 years of The Public Square.” WBEZ’s Richard Steele will MC. Performances by Laura Washington, Kevin Coval, FM Supreme and more!
