Artist, researcher and School of the Art Institute of Chicago Art Education professor Nicole Marroquín describes a critical moment of activism among Black and Latinx Chicago youth in the early 1970s — the Harrison and Froebel High School student uprisings, which were a grassroots response to racial injustice in the city’s public education system and beyond.

Background music in this episode includes “Backed Vibes” and “Study and Relax” by Kevin Macleod.
