Why the histories and places that tell the stories of African Americans, Latinos, Asian Americans, women, the LGTBQ communities deserve their places at the historic preservation table—and also the commitment of a preservation that’s willing to work hard to bring these stories to the fore.

Copies of Mr. Bey’s new book, Southern Exposure: The Overlooked Architecture of Chicago’s South Side (publication date October 15, 2019, $30), will be available for purchase and signing following the talk. Payment by cash or check.
