Thursday, June 27

7pm at Augustana Lutheran Church

On a hot day in July 1919, five black youths went swimming in Lake Michigan, unintentionally floating close to the “white” beach. An angry white man began throwing stones at the boys, striking and killing one. Racial conflict on the beach erupted into days of urban violence that shook the city of Chicago to its foundations.

Commemorating 1919: Remembering all that came before and after the race riots, envisioning what comes next

Sign up for the 2019 Peace Camp online by clicking on this link.

This year’s theme is around our city’s commemoration of the 1919 race riots. We’ll work together to construct a big timeline of events that led to the riots, what has happened since, and what we hope for in the future. We will spend another night laying out a map on the floor of the nave and marking the places where people were killed.

This work will correspond with a professional art installation that will be in the nave through the fall. On the final night, we’ll hear from author Claire Hartfield who has recently written a book about the subject. As always, we will begin with a light dinner, end with a campfire, and in between will be peace circles and much more.

Tuesday, June 25 – Thursday, June 27; 5:30 – 7:30 pm

Cost for the three evenings of camp is $20 for individual teens and adults, $40 for a family (one or more adults plus children); scholarships available (via the online registration link above).

Sponsored by the Baháí Community of Hyde Park & Augustana Lutheran Church; Camp takes place at Augustana, 5500 S. Woodlawn Ave.

Last night, LYRA, a vocal ensemble from St. Petersburg Russia performed for fifty people in Augustana’s acoustically excellent sanctuary. A beautiful performance about 2/3’s music from the Russian Orthodox Church tradition and the remaining were compositions inspired by Russian folk songs. Co-sponsored by St. Makarios the Great Orthodox Mission in Hyde Park.

The visual for this video isn’t great (I wasn’t expecting to record anything and didn’t sit with that in mind), but the sound is pretty good for a camera recording. This is The Lord’s Prayer as practiced in the Russian Orthodox tradition.
