Perhaps no city in America is more closely associated with organized crime than Chicago. That is mostly due to the meteoric rise, violent reign, and humiliating fall of Al Capone, America’s most famous gangster. John Russick will attempt to contextualize the Prohibition era in Chicago and help explain why Capone had such a significant impact on the city’s identity with the help of a brand new virtual reality app that explores the city’s (and Lincoln Park’s) most notorious unsolved crime. Attendees will be invited to experience the virtual reality app after the demonstration.
