Happy Saturday Chicago Southsiders,
We hope you enjoyed your week. It's almost time for the holidays. Woohoo! What are you doing to make this month your best month of 2022? Are you attending the Bronzeville Holiday Experience this evening?
P.S. We will dedicate this weekly newsletter to Timuel Black. He was a revered civil rights leader, educator, and historian on the South Side of Chicago. Black died on October 13, 2021 at his Hyde Park home. He was 102. He would have been 103-years-old on December 7. This week, Chicago Southsider captured the life and times of Timuel Black.
Are you creating your legacy?
