12/07/2020

Join Theta Omega Chapter, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated and the Chicago Urban League for a screening of Episode III in the documentary series, the Shame of Chicago - The Color Tax. The Color Tax tells the story of how a system of predatory home contract sales during the 1950s and 60s plundered enormous sums of wealth from the pockets of black families seeking homeownership. But unlike what happened in other cities, Chicago’s families fought back in one of city’s most heart-wrenching and perilous campaigns for racial and economic justice. Reverend William Barber, co-director of the National Poor People’s Campaign, A National Call for Moral Revival writes, “The Color Tax paints with vivid clarity perhaps America's most striking example of systemic racism.”

The screening will be immediately followed by a panel discussion with the film producer Bruce Orenstein, Margaret Wooten, VP of Housing and Financial Empowerment, Chicago Urban League, Mary Pattillo, Harold Washington Professor of Sociology and Chair, Department of African American Studies, Northwestern University, and Nykea Pippion McGriff, GRI, Chicago Association of Realtors. Moderated by Yolanda Daniel #realestate #equity
