Born in Chicago in 1933, Quincy Jones describes his childhood as "rough and scary"—and he literally has the scars to prove it. But the award-winning composer and film producer also credits his early years in Chicago for "all he has done in his life."

On this free virtual walking tour with Chicago Movie Tours, learn more about Quincy Jones as you visit his childhood home and a mural once featured his likeness. (That mural was painted over in the summer of 2023 with one that celebrates Chicago sports teams.)

This virtual event was streamed live on Facebook. NOTE: Due to the violent nature of Jones' backstory, this virtual tour may not be appropriate for children.
