Chicago's Ethnic Neighborhoods

About this event

Economic opportunities and less discriminatory attitudes attracted millions of skilled and unskilled laborers to Chicago. These immigrants established strong ethnic neighborhoods based on their religious beliefs, cultural similarities, and ethnicity. Although stereotyping and long-held animosities established these strong ethnic neighborhoods, Chicago grew with a strong vitality. This class will focus on the development of the neighborhoods until WWI. The class will cover multiple ethnic groups. Signup required.
