Just in time for Women’s History Month, the exhibition “Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg” opened February 9 at Illinois Holocaust Museum, and will run through August 16. Curated by the Skirball Cultural Center, this comprehensive showcase of Justice Ginsburg’s life features her numerous, often-simultaneous roles as a student, wife, mother, lawyer, judge, women’s rights pioneer, and Internet phenomenon. The exhibition tells Ginsburg’s story using a dynamic array of gallery interactive displays, listening stations, archival photographs and documents, historical artifacts, and contemporary art. “A key part of our mission at the Museum is teaching universal lessons to combat hatred, prejudice, and indifference,” said Illinois Holocaust Museum CEO Susan Abrams. “Few people convey these lessons more vividly than Ruth Bader Ginsburg. For decades, she has become of America’s great champions of equality. We are thrilled to host this exhibition and empower our visitors to be Upstanders like RBG.” Don’t miss this opportunity to experience the trailblazing life and accomplishments of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg.

Congratulations to the St. Anne Cardinals 8th grade basketball team that just won the 2019-2020 Northwest Catholic Conference against Our Lady of Wayside in Arlington Heights. What makes this particularly extraordinary is that these same young men also won last year in 7th grade. This makes them the first team in St. Anne’s history to both win the championship and win back-to-back championships. The powerhouse team has been together since 5th grade. Their overall record for the last four seasons is 72 wins and 5 losses. Go team!
