The Alliance's History: In 1977, a group of Chicago's leading African American artists and arts organizations came together and formed a new organization incorporated as the African American Arts Alliance of Chicago. The Alliance embraced the history of the original 1977 Chicago Black Theater Alliance while expanding their scope to include diverse groups of artistic mediums which included theaters, dance, music, literature, film, visual arts, organizations, and individual artists.
