The Silver Room Block Party
Yet another massive, daylong gathering of black folk on the South Side where nothing goes wrong: no violence, no crime, no shootings, no real arguments or fights, that goes unspoken, unnoticed and publicly unmentioned. Another beautiful summer gathering centered on the magical power of house music that happens only in Chicago, which the rest of the world knows nothing about because, well, there’s nothing sexy about black people in Chicago getting together and not killing one another.
