At least since the first Algonquian-speaking tribes arrived here, the Chicago area has attracted people whose lives were disrupted by war, famine, revolution, and economic crisis from all over the world. Join author and College of DuPage Professor of History Sam Mitrani to learn why so many came here and how these successive waves of immigrants have shaped and been shaped by this region we call home. Program takes place in the museum’s Education Center.
