ADD TO REGISTRATION

Named Chicago's Black Metropolis from 1920-1940, Bronzeville was home to stories, architecture, and culture. Following WWII, the neighborhood fell into economic decline from disinvestment in public transport, redlining and outmigration from the city to suburbs.

Today Bronzeville is experiencing a rebirth! Major developments in the area are kickstarting an influx of residents and investment. Learn about Bronzeville's future at Omni Ecosystem's adaptive reuse building (owned by CREW Impact Award winner Molley Meyer) while enjoying views of Chicago's skyline, refreshments and networking.
