Where we come from, where we are going, and where we dwell are not one in the same. Our story, our history and our legacy run simultaneously. Current events, the nature of media, and the social platforms that connect us have sparked thought in our communities and consciousness in our conversations. Our Chicago connect, Jay Freelance, has created a series of images that where inspired by Kendrik Lamar’s performance at the Grammy’s. Where “Compton” became the namesake of the continent of Africa, she gives us our own marking, putting “our” cities name on the map as well. We hope that this image becomes a conversation piece and we find liberation in its controversy.

Happy Black History Month.
