"No Bannon: More Than Freedom of Speech - Community Teach-In" will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at 235 E. 58th St., Chicago, IL 60637.
On Monday, Feb. 26, speakers will examine the university's current and historical effect on African-Americans in a teach-in titled "From Stephen Douglas to Stephen Bannon: Slavery, White Supremacy, and Reparations at UChicago." This talk will be held at 6 p.m. at McCormick Tribune Lounge in Hutchinson Commons, 5706 S. University Ave., Chicago, IL 60637.
