North of Chicago: Video Presentation

Inspiration in the naming of Shorefront


Dino Robinson, Founder of Shorefront, discussed the rich, yet little known history of African American life and culture in Evanston and other suburban communities north of Chicago. The presentation was held at the Evanston Public Library on Saturday, May 31, 2014. This is the second time Dino has presented “North of Chicago”, the first at Northwestern University summer of 2013. Dino has presented dozens of lectures throughout the north shore on aspects of Black life and culture since 1999.
