The Labor Trail: Chicago's History of Working-Class Life and Struggle

Public unveiling and celebration of the award-winning map of Chicago’s working-class history. “The Labor Trail” is the product of a joint effort to showcase the many generations of working-class life and struggle in the Chicago area’s rich and turbulent past. The Trail’s neighborhood tours invite participants to get acquainted with the events, places, and people — often unsung — who have made the city what it is today. Meet the creators of the work as well as long-time activists who put Chicago labor on the map. With music by Bucky Halker from his new CD, “Welcome to Labor Land,” and refreshments to follow.
