Mike Amezcua, assistant professor of history at George Washington University and the author of the upcoming book Making Mexican Chicago, will take part in an in-person and livestreamed conversation. He will speak to how working-class Chicago neighborhoods like Pilsen and La Villita became sites of upheaval and renewal after WWII as Mexican immigrants and Mexican Americans attempted to build new communities in the face of white resistance and racial capitalism that cast them as perpetual aliens.
