As we close out Foster Care Awareness Month.  Visual artist and filmmaker Ginnie McKnight discusses her childhood being in the foster care system.   After being snatched away from her mother on her 7th birthday, Ginnie was forced to conquer life obstacles with little to no support.  Her resilience has brought her to being a well educated, accomplished artist and now you can add filmmaker to her dossier.   Ginnie talks about her invite from Canne Film Festival to submit her short documentary film ‘Moving Home’, her aspirations of winning an Oscar one day and so much more!

Tanikia Carpenter, CEO and Founder of Black Owned Chicago invites everyone to check out historical trolley tours from Downtown Chicago to the South Side of the city.  The trolley will tour many cultural and historical landmarks such as the hospital where the first open heart surgery was performed by a black surgeon.

The tours will take place in June only- every Tuesday.
