March 2007 marks the 3rd anniversary of the US occupation of Iraq.  The Iraq Study Group recently advised President Bush that it's time to develop an exit strategy.  The War in Iraq is a major international struggle, but how does it all come back and affect life in Chicago?  Join us for a dynamic discussion featuring personal perspectives from film director, Usama Alshaibi; Iraq War veteran, Keith Flatley; and Iraq War activist, educator, and coordinator with Voices for Creative Nonviolence, Kathy Kelly.  Includes a screening of the trailer for Usama Alshaibi's latest film, Nice Bombs, which won Best Documentry at the 2006 Chicago Underground Film Festival.

The Chicago History Museum, in conjunction with The Public Square at the Illinois Humanities Council, is pleased to introduce In The K/Now, a monthly series that explores the issues Chicago residents face living in an urban society.
