This Civic Season, Hull-House Museum will partner with the Chicago History Museum
and Made By Us to present: Civic Stories, Civic Songs. At this community-building
event, we will gather to eat, sing, and share stories of civic engagement. We’ll be led in
collective song by Chicago-based musical ensemble Vision the Rhythm and hear stories
of civic engagement and action from our community members. This event will include a
meal catered CheSa’s Bar and Bistro, a creole restaurant in Avondale.

July 4th commemorates the moment a new nation was born, based on ideals that each
generation since has worked to bring to life: freedom, equality, justice, and
opportunity. Juneteenth, celebrated just a few weeks earlier, reminds us of the
struggles and hard-won victories in our ongoing journey to form a “more perfect union.”
Civic Season unites our oldest federal holiday with our newest, mobilizing a movement
to understand our past and shape our future. This event is presented Coffeehouse Style,
meaning it is alcohol-free and open to all ages, and it is FREE with a reservation.
