Through 2018, Shorefront’s traveling exhibit, “Legacies: Profiles on the North Shore,” will be on display in the second-floor hallway at the Lorraine H. Morton Civic Center, 2100 Ridge Ave. Exhibit hours are 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on weekdays and 8:30 a.m. to noon on Saturday.

The exhibit is composed of 15 graphic panels profiling contemporary and historic people, organizations, and institutions, illustrating the lives and existence of thriving Black communities that have been virtually ignored in historical context.

The initial set of five panels was introduced in 2016 with additional panels released each year. “Legacies” has been exhibited twice at the Noyes Cultural Arts Center, as well as at the “Bright Night for the Arts” event, Evanston Made (formerly Open Studios), Fleetwood-Jourdain Community Center and the Evanston History Center.

Shorefront is a nonprofit archival center that collects, preserves, and educates people about Black history on Chicago’s suburban North Shore.
