A group of artists and activists are addressing one of the ugliest periods in Chicago history with their new exhibit Opening the Black Box: The Charge is Torture. The show is the result of a year’s worth of work by the Chicago Torture Justice Memorials Project, which seeks to reckon with the torture of over 100 African American men and women under Police Commander Jon Burge. Their goal is to better preserve the history of the torture and activism to hold Burge accountable, to share this history with new audiences and to engage them to work on behalf of torture survivors. The show will run October 4- December 21st at Sullivan Galleries, 33 S. State St., 7th floor. The opening reception is Friday, October 5, 4:30–8:00PM. To learn more about the project, see the Chicago Torture Justice Memorial Project website and the exhibit website.
