Obama summit 2019 dedicated to the city of Chicago

Former U.S President and First Lady Barack and Michelle Obama are in Chicago Tuesday for the third annual Obama Foundation Summit.

The two-day event at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Bronzeville brings leaders from around the world to exchange ideas and knowledge.

Among the speakers are writer and producer Ava DuVernay, actor Billy Porter, actress Yara Shahidi and musicians Mavis Staples and Jeff Tweedy.


The South Side of Chicago is home to the Obamas. It’s the place where President Obama first began his career in public service as a community organizer.

It’s the place where First Lady Michelle Obama was born and raised and where they made their home and started their family. And it is where they decided to locate the Obama Presidential Center.
