We Walk: A Celebration of Black Community

October 16 @ 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm CDT

HAMOC will bring its outdoor, community, traveling exhibition to North Lawndale for the second year in the row.  We Walk: A Celebration of Black Community, was originally organized in 2020, in the Uptown neighborhood, in direct response to the Black Lives Matter protests and the disproportionate effect of the Covid-19 Pandemic on the Black community. The primary collaborators of the exhibition came from the African-American and Black Diasporic communities, including BILPOC (Black, Indigenous, Latinx, People of Color) led organizations, immigrant groups, small business owners, local historians, cultural experts, artists and activists. The exhibition is an empowering cultural outlet that  highlights positive Black contributions.

HAMOC is collaborating with Crossing Borders Music, Lawndale Pop Up Spot, the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) and Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) to expand on the exhibition and transform it into a festival-like event.
