Highlights from our 2018 Annual Luncheon

Our 2018 Annual Luncheon conversation was one for the books. Here's what you need to know

From forcing down a dozen ice cream sandwiches in order to acquire a Chuck Berry guitar, to visiting a village in Mozambique most affected by a slave vessel sinking centuries ago, audiences couldn't stop talking about our 2018 Annual Luncheon keynote, held Wednesday, September 12. Lonnie G. Bunch III, founding director of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture and former president and director of the Chicago History Museum explained with color and humor how art and culture impact communities.

But don't take our word for it. Watch for yourself! The following highlight video and photo album are fresh out of the MPC kitchen. Enjoy!
