WTTW News invites you to Black Voices: A WTTW News Community Conversation, a virtual event on Monday, July 26 at 8:00 pm. Before the pandemic struck, our arts and culture sector was a significant employer and economic driver that generated thousands of jobs and billions of dollars for our city. With Chicago having fully reopened on June 11, this month’s community conversation will take a look at what this means for Chicago’s diverse and vibrant arts scene.

Chicago Tonight correspondent Angel Idowu will moderate the live online conversation featuring Erin Harkey, First Deputy Commissioner of the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events; Tonika Johnson, co-founder of Englewood Arts Collective; Bernard Loyd, President of Build Bronzeville; and independent artist Dwight White. The panel will explore COVID's impact on the art scene in Chicago and what might be in its future.

This event is free, but RSVP below is required.

Wooten, Jr.; Allstate; Chicago Community Trust; The Joseph & Bessie Feinberg Foundation; The Abe and Ida Cooper Foundation; Lloyd A.
