Wow! What a wonder night of Stepping at ECI Tuesday Stepping Under the Stars at the 31st Street Beachside Bar & Grill (Pier 31)!
Another great dance lesson! This time by Master of Original Chicago Style Stepping, ANDRE DRE BLACKWELL! We’re serious about furthering the popularity of this dance!
FEL DAVIS arrived and delivered a powerful, crowd moving and pleasing vocal performance! He sang three of his songs, including his latest release “Never” and the steppers flocked to the deck to dance! Hearty cheers and applauses followed his performance! Wow!
As for the music, the dance areas remained full all night and people danced until after the last song! BUT, your honest feedback would be appreciated. Some like more old-school, or more new school, or faster, or slower, or this, or that, or the other, etcétera, etcétera, etcétera. So, pleasing everyone is a serious task! Your honest feedback will help keep us in that evasive “happy medium.”
If you have photos or videos, please use the hashtag #ECISteppingAtPier31
See you next Tuesday, friends!

On a daily basis, immigrant communities in Illinois live with the fear that imminent raids and escalated activity by ICE, as stated by Trump, will rip families apart. We see more information each day regarding deplorable situations at the border – where government officials deny there is a humanitarian crisis, where children are treated as less than human, and where more children have died in immigration custody in 2019 than in the past 10 years.
In Illinois, we are taking a stand.
We see the current criminalization of immigrants, those coming to our borders seeking asylum and those seeking a better life for themselves and their families, as a continuation of the United States’ deep history of exploiting and criminalizing immigrants.
We reject the framework of hate + profit. Instead we envision a movement that builds intersectional power among our vibrant communities and a nation that recognizes the incredible social and cultural value of immigrants in our society.
Join immigrant rights, social justice, and grassroots organizations in protest against the administration’s destructive policies and actions, and take a stand to welcome immigrant communities in solidarity. Add your voice to those in the movement to end criminalization, detention and deportation of immigrant families in the United States.

Stony Island Arts Bank
6760 South Stony Island Avenue, Chicago, Illinois 60649
Few television series were as innovative and influential to pop culture as Soul Train. The iconic show that started right here in Chicago. From 1970—2006, Soul Train offered a window into African American music and culture, and its charismatic host, Don Cornelius, was the man responsible for a new era in African American expression. Narrated by Chicago’s own Academy Award nominee Terrence Howard and inspired by book of the same name written by Nelson George, The Hippest Trip In America explores the origins of this groundbreaking television series and how it became an iconic pop cultural phenomenon. Famous dancers such as Rosie Perez and Jody Watley, performers such as Aretha Franklin, Chicago’s own Chaka Khan, and Don Cornelius himself share their memories and insights into the show and its time during a period of extraordinary social and political change.
Immediately after the film, join resident DJ Duane Powell in the Johnson Lounge for a special Saturday The Spirit Of ’79: Dance Forever soul disco dance party.

Event Description:
While cities across the United States have been implementing environmental policies that have led to the rapid growth of green spaces—parks, community gardens, wilderness areas and urban agriculture—public spaces remain contested ground. Many green spaces are often as segregated as our cities, with the barriers keeping black and brown residents from accessing public space being both visible and invisible. As planners, businesspeople, city leaders, policymakers, and residents, how can we confront the legacies of violence and exclusion, support and empower those directly affected, and create safe and accessible places that offer social, economic, and recreational opportunities for all? Join us for a conversation about the disproportionate lack of access to environmental goods and how to ensure the right of every community to not only use, but co-create public spaces.
Featured Panelists:
• Tonika Lewis Johnson, Chicago native and founder of the Folded Map project
• Juanita Irizarry, Executive Director, Friends of the Parks
• Brian McCammack, the Beerly Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies and Chair of Urban Studies at Lake Forest College and the author of Landscapes of Hope: Nature and the Great Migration in Chicago

Second Annual Back Alley Jazz
Hosted by Hyde Park Jazz Festival
Saturday, July 27, 2019 at 12 PM – 8 PM
7300 Block of S. Paxton Ave.
Back Alley Jazz 2019 is scheduled to take place Saturday, July 27 from noon-8pm on the 7300 block of S. Paxton in Chicago’s South Shore neighborhood. This community-led event is a continuation of the inaugural 2018 Back Alley Jazz event, which was conceived by artists Fo Wilson and Norman Teague and produced in partnership with the Hyde Park Jazz Festival, the Hyde Park Art Center, and South Shore residents.
Following a very long tradition of neighborhood-level DIY organizing, in 2019 residents of S. Paxton are taking the lead in producing the second annual Back Alley Jazz event and keeping the momentum going as we continue efforts to raise funds for larger initiatives in 2020 and 2021 (and beyond!).
This year’s event will focus on the original DJ jam sessions, and will include some of the original DJ’s from the Jazz in the Alley events of the 1960s and 70s. DJ’s will perform sets from front yards along S. Paxton, complemented by several live performances by local musicians.
We will once again have interactive art activities, food for sale from local vendors, and a picnic area where neighbors can gather and enjoy the performances, food, and each other.
Back Alley Jazz 2019 is supported in part by the Joyce Foundation and by the The Chicago Fund for Safe and Peaceful Communities made possibly by Partnership for Safe and Peaceful Communities.
