WASHINGTON — First lady Michelle Obama will give the spouses of NATO leaders a taste of her native South Side on May 20 before a private dinner for them at the Art Institute of Chicago, her aides said Monday.
She's inviting the group to tour the Gary Comer Youth Center, which offers educational, arts, physical education and other enrichment programs — and boasts a rooftop garden. The center is at 7200 S. Ingleside Ave.
Performers slated to entertain the dignitaries include the Soul Children of Chicago, the South Shore Dance Drill Team, which makes its home at the youth center, and the Muntu Dance Theatre of Chicago, known for African and African-American dance, music and folklore performances.
