What are Chicago’s erased and obscured Latina/x histories, including LGBTQ histories? What are Latina/x perspectives on existing monuments and visions for new monuments for 21st Century Chicago? How can Chicago monuments help us imagine and rebuild a city with more racial, gender and LGBTQ visibility and justice?
