Chicago Photo Exhibit Closing Event with Dr. Earnestine Jenkins

September 28 @ 7:00 pm – September 28 @ 9:00 pm
Admission: Free

Lecture and discussion with Dr. Earnestine Jenkins, Professor of Art History-Visual Culture Studies, University of Memphis

 Saturday night on the South Side of Chicago was sacred to the many Black working class Southern transplants that called the city home. Electric blues, ice cold drinks, and the hope for finding love and companionship drew men and women to the club, where photographer Michael Abramson awaited to document the experience. Join Dr. Earnestine Jenkins as she highlights elements from the museum’s “Love in the Club” photo exhibition and discusses the impact of club culture within Black communities in Memphis, Chicago, and Pittsburgh.
