Creative Activism and the CTJM

Nov. 10, 2011, 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.

South Side Community Art Center
3831 S. Michigan Ave.

Join us to explore the use of creative activism in the struggle for justice in the Chicago police torture cases. Civil rights attorney Larry Kennon will host this dialogue with torture survivors, artists and activists.

The Chicago Torture Justice Memorials Project invites artists and justice seekers to submit proposals for a speculative monument to memorialize the Chicago police torture cases. Our goal is to honor the survivors of torture, their family members and the African American communities affected by the torture. The monument will also recall and honor the nearly two-decades long struggle for justice waged by torture survivors and their families, attorneys, community organizers, and people from every neighborhood and walk of life in Chicago.

Sponsored by the Chicago Torture Justice Memorials, Black People Against Police Torture, and The Propeller Fund.
