Between 1910 and 1920, a tremendous number of African-American workers journeyed to Bronzeville to escape oppression in the southern United States. As one of the most significant landmarks of the "Great Migration," this South Side neighborhood is shrouded in a glowing, African-American cultural allure. We will take a riding tour of Bronzeville’s most famous spots and make a surprise visit to one of their most notable places today. (It’s a surprise!) Afterwards, we will go to Yassa Restaurant, one of Chicago’s only dining destinations featuring Senegalese cuisine. We will have the opportunity to sample their homemade juices and have a wonderful dinner, dining to the tunes of the Junta Ensemble.
