with Leslie Yamshon at the Chicago History Museum
Sunday, November 11. Tour begins at 1:00 p.m. Carpool from Beth Emet at 11:00 a.m.
We have all heard that Chicago is a ‘salad bowl’ of immigrants, but how much do you know about the history of immigration to Chicago? Beth Emet member and volunteer museum educator Leslie Yamshon will guide us to explore the three waves of immigration starting in 1820, and the Great Migration of African Americans from the South. To complete the tour, we will visit the special exhibition, Remembering Dr. King. Participants can choose to lunch together at the museum’s North and Clark Café.
Chicago History Museum admission fee collected at the museum.
