Yesterday marked the 20th Anniversary of the death of Chicago Mayor Harold Washington. Three resources to send along are
- “Harold” by Chicago Public Radio’s This American Life,
- the book Harold Washington and the neighborhoods: progressive city government in Chicago, 1983-1987 edited by Pierre Clavel and Wim Wiewel (available in the MVCC Library).
- the special November 23rd episode of Chicago Public Radio’s 484
Harold Washinton’s story is especially timely with the current discussions taking place around the library and bookstore’s One Book, One College program on Malcolm X.
