Former president Barack Obama will return to his hometown of Chicago Monday for an event closely aligned with his work history before the White House. He’ll speak to young leaders about community organizing and civic engagement at the University of Chicago. Obama first came to Chicago as a community organizer in 1985. He also taught constitutional law at the university’s law school from 1992 to 2004, right up until he became a U.S. senator. You can watch the speech live in the player above beginning at noon ET.
