Organized by MOVILH, or the Movement for Homosexual Integration and Liberation, the event stretched over four city blocks with multiple stages for musical performances. The drag queens were treated as celebrities by people who attended the festival. Image by Jon Lowenstein/NOOR/Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting. Chile, 2013.

Pulitzer Center grantee Jeff Kelly Lowenstein joins a panel at the Chicago Headline Club on Tuesday, May 20 to examine how Chile remembers its painful past, and how those memories influence current actions. Photographs of Chile's past, present and future by award-winning photographer Jon Lowenstein, co-owner of NOOR, also will be shown.

The Lowenstein brothers collaborated on the Pulitzer Center-supported reporting project "Enduring Rifts: Chile 40 years after the Pinochet Coup," which reports on the South American country that remains a wounded, divided nation where the past lives in the present.

Also on the panel is Hugo Rojas Coral, a professor of sociology of law from University Alberto Hurtado, Santiago, Chile. Coral will use Chile's grappling with historical memory and indifference 40 years after the Pinochet to consider these issues here in the United States and in other countries.

The event begins with refreshments at 6:00pm. At 6:30pm, Susy Schultz from Community Media Workshop introduces the panel and opens the discussion.

Tuesday, May 20
6:00 pm to 8:30 pm
Congress Center, C, 219
