This event is made possible by our partners at Yellowhammer Brewing.
The album, “Time of the Phoenix,” is a collection of songs and stories compiled by talented local musicians inspired by poetry from the original Rainbow Coalition. These songs capture the history and aspirations of poor southerners who came to Chicago and other northern cities to find work.
Throughout the event, view an educational exhibit in Jeff & Blues that immerses you in the history of Southern migration to northern cities.
