Red Squad Symposium
WHEN: June 1, 9:00a — 3:00p
WHERE: Chicago History Museum
DESCRIPTION: Over much of the 20th century, Chicago’s Police Surveillance Unit monitored “subversives” and stored what it discovered in its Red Squad records. These days, the Chicago History Museum holds that material as part of a special archive. Attorney Richard Gutman, who helped lead the legal fight against the Red Squad, will be a featured speaker. Cost: $30, $20 members; includes lunch. Purchase tickets here.
