Chicago, IL 60616

Join us at the lakefront to witness and participate in a meditative memorial to Eugene Williams, a young black man who was murdered in 1919. FLOAT by Jefferson Pinder and A.J. McClenon is a simple act in the remembrance of the riots of that summer a hundred years ago. Over 100 participants will peacefully drift across a historic invisible racial barrier using inflatables, reactivating and reclaiming a site of violence. The event concludes with a procession. Recommended for ages 12 and up. This event is presented as a part of the City of Chicago?s Year of Chicago Theatre. Check out more YOCT events at https://chicagoplays.com/year-of-chicago-theatre/
