BLACK WALL STREET CHICAGO JOINS CALL FOR CHICAGO MAYOR RAHM EMANUEL TO HONOR TODAYS (APRIL 15th) 90th BIRTHDAY OF CHICAGO'S FIRST BLACK MAYOR HAROLD WASHINGTON WITH PUBLIC STATEMENT OF SUPPORT FOR NEW VISIBLE SIGNAGE ON HAROLD WASHINGTON LIBRARY

"During my 40 years in public service on local, state, and national levels, there could be no other political activity in my early years as a youth activist that could be more memorable than working with and serving as a youth coordinator for the historic '83 and '87 elections of Chicago's first Black Mayor Harold Washington and pleased today on Harold Washington birthday to lend my personal and organizational support behind this effort to have todays Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel better honor the legacy of Harold Washington by changing the outdoor public signage on the Harold Washington Library to better illuminate his name for the public to see."

WORRILL COALITIONAL LEADERSHIP SEEK MEETING WITH MAYOR EMANUEL TO GET MAYOR WASHINGTON's NAME ON LIBRARY

 Worrill, coalitional leadership seeks meeting with Mayor Emanuel to get Mayor Washington's name on library

 

 

By Chinta Strausberg

 

 

The name of the late Mayor Harold Washington must be carved and highly visible on the Loop library named in his honor, Dr. Conrad Worrill, director and professor of the Jacob H. Carruthers Center for Inner City Studies, said Saturday.

 

Interviewed at Josephine’s Hardtime Cooking Restaurant, 436 E. 79th St., Worrill, who Thursday had appeared on WVON’s Cliff Kelley show along with noted writer Lerone Bennet, said it’s time for a group of leaders to meet with Mayor Rahm Emanuel over this issue.

 

 “The African American collective leadership and coalitional forces who understand the importance of maintaining the legacy of the late Honorable Mayor Harold Washington should come together and seek and demand a meeting with Mayor Rahm Emanuel to address the issue of placing signage on the Harold Washington library that will illuminate his name….”

 

Worrill also embraces the We Can, Inc, Committee, headed by Florence Cox, demand that the Chicago Public School (CPS) obey the 1991 state law then passed by the late Senator William “Bill” Shaw which states the CPS must teach African American history to all grade and high school students. Cox and other member of the We Can, Inc. Committee recently met with CPS personnel but received no commitment that African American history will be taught to students.

 

“We need a resurgency and a revitalization of a movement that will bring forth all the tactics and strengths necessary” to win this battle to ensure all students know the contributions of Africans and African Americans in all subjects.
