Thursday, June 25, 7 pm, Community Meeting Room, Main Library

50 years ago this summer, Martin Luther King spoke to over 10,000 people on the Winnetka Green about the racially exclusive nature of Chicago's northern suburbs. Evanston, like other suburban communities continues to struggle with this contentious issue, especially the effect of affordable housing on racial diversity.

Evanston Public Library is proud to partner with Open Communities on a panel discussion of the history  of fair and affordable housing in Evanston, and what is being done currently to make Evanston a fair and welcoming community for all.

Speakers:

Gail Schechter -  Open Communities

John Fuller - Evanston NAACP

Lin Ewing - North Shore-Barrington Association of Realtors

Sarah Flax - Evanston Housing and Grants Administrator
