“Mr. Rami had a front-row seat to a who’s who of literary, political, entertainment, and civil rights icons who changed the course of history for Black people in this country.”  Robert Townsend, actor, director, comedian, and writer
 
Presented in conjunction with Designing for Change: Chicago Protest Art of the 1960s–70s, Chicago History Museum presents a lecture by Pemon Rami, a Chicago native and Black culture advocate. During this engaging and informative talk, Rami shares about his decades-long and multifaceted activism for Black lives. Hear about organizing methods, photographic history, reviewing FBI student files, and more. Rami’s legacy of activism sits uniquely at the confluence of the Civil Rights Movement, the Chicago Public Schools student movements, and the Black Arts movement of the 1960s–70s, and continues today.
