Bringing a crowd of 700 to silence is no easy feat, but human rights advocate (and former NBA player) John Amaechi OBE did just that with his impassioned keynote address at Facing History and Ourselves’ 23rd Annual Chicago Benefit Dinner at the Hyatt Regency Chicago. Equally remarkable: The evening, which included a cocktail reception and a delectable dinner, raised an astounding $1.5 million for the organization’s efforts to combat racism and prejudice through student engagement. –Photos by Bob Carl and Dan Rest
