Wipping Up Community in the Kitchen

Community bonds are sometimes formed at school, church, festivals, or sporting events. But often the tightest bonds are cemented on a smaller scale. The modest setting of the kitchen has been central to nourishing Irish music and African American quilting. Come hear how these very different expressive arts entertain, empower, build unity, and create beauty, with the Bronzeville/Black Chicagoan Historical Society, Chicago History Museum, and the Irish American Heritage Center.


Recorded Sunday, December 09, 2007 at Chicago History Museum.
