Opening Tuesday, September 29th, from 4PM - 5PM
Join Jane Addams Hull-House Museum education manager Michael Ramirez on a virtual trip to the Near West Side to see Hull-House and its surrounding neighborhood. Learn about the life and work Hull-House founder Jane Addams, the unique work of its residents, the settlement house’s lasting impact, and the conditions immigrants faced in the city’s 19th Ward. Explore two current Hull-House exhibitions: Why Women Should Vote, which pays tribute to the national suffrage movement, and True Peace: The Presence of Justice, which explores the history of women’s peace and justice organizing and reflects on questions of women’s leadership, electoral power, voice, and racism within women’s movements. You’ll also see the work by contemporary artist-organizers Sarah-Ji and Monica Trinidad documenting recent Chicago protest movements.
