For those of you in and around the greater Chicago area, this and the entire series of programs, on the campus of the University of Illinois, Chicago, will be well worth your time. There will come a day when this country fully embraces an honest and open conversation about race, gender, and sexual orientation. Until that day, embrassing a true sense of inalieable rights and justice cannot be enjoyed by ALL Americans. It is unconscionable that we as the home of the brave and the land of the free are still grappling with an inclusive acceptance of equality and the pursuit of happiness. There are those that continue to fight the good fight.
