On October 3 of 1919, the United States’ Red Summer finally came to its bloody conclusion with the massacre of African Americans at Elaine, Arkansas.
Come and commemorate all those who died that summer here in Chicago and throughout the United States, and all that has happened since. NON:op Open Opera Works’ sound art installation tells the story of Chicago’s experience during the Red Summer in tone and spoken word.
