Schedule of Programs
Faheem Majeed Studio
+ Tempestt Hazel in conversation via a virtual program with
The Art Institute of Chicago
From the Center, a retrospective of Faheem Majeed’s works from the past 20 years is also currently on view at the South Side Community Art Center (SSCAC) until March 27th!!
Following, Majeed will create an ambitious new installation for the Hyde Park Art Center that furthers his investigation of culturally specific institutions by focusing on the history and memory of the historic South Side Community Art Center (SSCAC). Majeed will produce a monumental charcoal rubbing of the building façade of the SSCAC as the central focus of his first large-scale solo exhibition. In addition to this new fabric work, Majeed will also be incorporating his ongoing series of reused wooden planks entitled Planting and Maintaining a Perennial Garden repurposed from the SSCAC’s Burroughs Gallery. For this installation, the wooden planks will take the form of a platform that will both raise the massive building-sized fabric rubbing on a pedestal and be host to performance and discussion. The exhibition will be on view from April 15–July 11, 2021.

I Am Not Your Negro Book CoverIn honor of Black History Month, we’ve selected our second Book Club Book: I Am Not Your Negro,
Racial Justice League Book ClubYWCA
Exclusive to Racial Justice League Members
Being part of the YWCA’s Racial Justice League means more than taking our pledge. We encourage our individual and organizational members to make specific commitments to advance racial justice.
One way to take action is to learn about systemic racism and its pervasive effects. The Racial Justice League Book Club provides an opportunity to hear from leading voices on civil rights and the history of racism, and a safe space to discuss the specific impacts on our communities.
I Am Not Your Negro Book CoverIn honor of Black History Month, we’ve selected our second Book Club Book: I Am Not Your Negro, by James Baldwin. The book, and accompanying film, provide insight into Baldwin’s relationships with three famous, assassinated friends—Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King, Jr.
While it can be easy to think of each as just a historical figure, the novel puts their individuality back in the forefront as people who just wanted their humanity recognized and respected.
The virtual Book Club discussion will be:
March 4, 2021
8:00 – 9:00 PM CST
Support women- and minority-owned independent businesses by purchasing I Am Not Your Negro through one of these suggested retailers:
• Afriware Books, Co. (Maywood, IL)
• Da Book Joint (Chicago, IL)
• Frontline Books (Chicago, IL)

Join us for discussion about the relationship between mental, physical and emotional health as we are faced with decisions about vaccines, nutrition and choosing the best ways to keep our immune system strong.

While CPS names SEL & mental health issues as major concerns, there are many parents & students who are not aware of services or are currently only available in person for students with a 504 or IEP. CPS needs to expand & target a communication & outreach plan.
There are schools who build SEL & mental health into their day & their week – people get infected & die from COVID every day. There needs to be mandated practices determined by youth, families & educators.
We can be more creative with SEL & mental health services. We can leverage outside resources and organizations who have been doing the work (ex. parent mentors).

Recurring racial healing circles are an opportunity to create and build trust between participants and communities that will often serve as the foundation for other work related to racial equity and healing – e.g., changing inequitable and systemic laws and policies. Registrants must commit to attend each week to honor the process and respect those who have committed to change with you.
