Part 2: Join panelists Alden Loury, director of research and evaluation at the Metropolitan Planning Council, Coya Paz, assistant professor at DePaul University and the artistic director of the Free Street Theater and UIC professor Nilda Flores-Gonzalez, author of Citizens But Not Americans: Race & Belonging Among Latino Millennials as they discuss politics, power, and the hierarchy of race in Chicago. The exhibition Race: Are We So Different? examines how economic interests, politics, and struggles for power shape our understanding of race. How have those power struggles shaped the meaning of race in Chicago and informed who benefits and who gets left behind?
