What we're about

The Chicago Black Professionals Meetup is a group primarily made up of men and women over the age of 21 here in the Chicago area whom share an interest in ethnic heritages rooted in the African diaspora. We come from broadly diverse educational, professional, and social backgrounds, but we have a common interest: to come together for social networking. We strive to promote social connections between our members, and to promote a healthy and free exchange of information and ideas between the members of the group that will enrich their lives.

Please note that our events are intended for adults over the age of 21. Exceptions will be noted in the event descriptions or comments.

Volleyball Thursdays!

South Holland Community Center

$5.00

Volleyball anyone? We've already seen the volleyball meetup in the city, but here's one for the south siders and south suburbanites. We'll be meeting at the South Holland Community Center on Thursday nights to play volleyball. This meetup is all about fun and isn't meant to be a competition, although I'm sure we'll get our competitive juices flowing as we play. The cost to attend this meetup is $5 if you're not a member of the community center. You'll pay at the front desk and will have to sign a waiver. Please be sure to rsvp. It'll be a fun time for all!

Movie Night: Us (Studio Movie Grill, 7:30 pm showtime)

Studio Movie Grill

In an ongoing campaign to make us forget all about his involvement with "Key & Peele", Jordan Peele jumps into the horror genre once again with a new story about a family that encounters their doppelgängers and must fight for survival. Synopsis: Accompanied by her husband, son and daughter, Adelaide Wilson returns to the beachfront home where she grew up as a child. Haunted by a traumatic experience from the past, Adelaide grows increasingly concerned that something bad is going to happen to her family. Her worst fears soon become a reality when four masked strangers descend upon the house, forcing the Wilsons into a fight for survival. When the masks come off, each stranger takes the appearance of a different family member. We will be attending the 7 pm show at the Studio Movie Grill in Chatham. Tickets are on sale now. Tickets are $9.75 each.
