Access Chicago

Brian McCammack to present at Digital Chicago Seminar

On Tuesday, October 31, Brian McCammack, Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies, presents in the Digital Chicago Seminar on 

“Mapping the Blues in Chicago’s Built Environment.” Come to the CCP at noon to learn from your colleagues and enjoy a light lunch!

Photographer Raeburn Flerlage produced a vast photographic archive documenting Chicago’s blues, jazz, and folk music scene in the 1960s. Along with his photographs of Chicago’s South Side, including the built environment and cultural events like the annual Bud Billiken parade, Flerlage’s work offers insight into the African American community in the midst of the post-World War II Great Migration. This project digitally maps the South Side of Chicago in the 1960s, capturing a new dimension of black Chicago.
