Revolution Books announces a series of events in celebration of 
 BLACK HISTORY MONTH
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2 PMOLD SCHOOL ADVENTURES FROM ENGLEWOOD--SOUTH SIDE OF CHICAGO
Author Event: Elaine Hegwood Bowen shares her recollections of what life was like growing up in Englewood when her parents migrated to Chicago from the South in the early 1950s and purchased a home there in 1959. She grounds her stories in exciting childhood adventures, as well as the cultural happenings of the time, discussing such issues as Dr. Martin Luther King, race riots, and integration. She provides a glimpse into what this Chicago neighborhood was once like. The author has been featured on Richard Steele's "Barber Shop" show on Vocalo and in the Museum of Contemporary Art's "Welcome to the Neighborhood" series now she joins us at Revolution Books for Black History Month.

These events are free; we will pass the hat to keep Revolution Books open and growing. If you are on Facebook, please  join this event there and invite friends!
