Park Forest, IL-(ENEWSPF)- The Park Forest Public Library, 400 Lakewood Blvd, will begin its new History Lecture Series at 7:00 p.m. February 5. The History Lecture Series will tackle a diverse range of topics that include the Emancipation Proclamation, Voter Suppression, Winston Churchill, and the Chicago Mafia.

The first lecture will be “Emancipation to Inauguration: Chicago’s Black Experience” on Tuesday, February 5, at 7 p.m. in the Ringering Room.

Presenter Clarence Goodman, musician, historian, and radio personality, has been all over the place and all over the map. From entertaining senior citizens at retirement communities to performing at wine bars, and from giving “virtual tours” based on Chicago history to leading actual physical tours around the Windy City, he has quickly earned a reputation since returning to his hometown.

Question and answer sessions will follow each lecture. Light refreshments will be served. 

The series is free and open to the public.
