Chicago Screening of “Kaskaskia and the Pursuit of a More Perfect Union"

Illinois Humanities will screen parts 1 and 2 of “Kaskaskia and the Pursuit of a More Perfect Union,” our two-part documentary feature about the nuanced history of Kaskaskia, Illinois’ first state capital. Join us to explore the region’s evolution, then enjoy dinner and take part in discussion as we continue to unpack the question: “What might the complex history and ongoing evolution of Kaskaskia enable us to learn about the pursuit of a more perfect Union?”

This event will be hosted at the Harold Washington Public Library Center in Chicago, Illinois. Dinner will be served.
