Rivaling the Harlem Renaissance, Bronzeville became Chicago’s epicenter of black working, middle-, and upper-class culture and establishments from the 1920s through the ‘50s. Bronzeville was well-known for its nightclubs and dance halls. The jazz, blues, and gospel music that developed with the migration of Southern musicians attracted scores of diverse listeners and admirers. This lecture will explore the artists who worked within and documented this cultural phenomenon.
Juarez Hawkins, a native of Chicago, is a second-generation artist. Her mother is one of the painters of Chicago’s famous Wall of Respect. Hawkins is a member of the Sapphire and Crystals collective. She has exhibited widely and has been showcased in literary works. She has taught art at a number of Chicago-area schools and a variety of galleries; she currently teaches Art History at Chicago State University.
