BUILD’s annual ‘Black Table’ event connects Chicago youth with Black leaders

CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) — On a Monday afternoon in February 2023, something special occurred inside the Walnut Room at the Macy’s on State Street.

It was the annual Black Table event, which West Side nonprofit Broader Urban Involvement and Leadership Development (BUILD) began hosting in 2017. Inside the wood-paneled room with a beautiful view of downtown Chicago, local high schoolers enjoyed a four-course meal and sat, shoulder-to-shoulder, with Chicago-area leaders, entertainers, and difference-makers.
