Sarah Jane Rhee is a movement photographer documenting grassroots struggles in Chicago. She was politicized when her daughter Cadence, now 8, entered the Chicago Public School system, and she was radicalized in the struggle for education justice thereafter, starting with the Whittier Occupation in the fall of 2010. She currently uses her photography to document the stories of people organizing to dismantle all forms of oppression. She is also the photographer for the Social Justice Initiative at UIC.
This event is co-sponsored by Art In These Times, AREA Chicago, and the Gray Center for Arts and Inquiry at the University of Chicago.
