Artist and writer Lowell Thompson discusses his new book, African Americans in Chicago. From DuSable to President Obama, Chicago’s history has been significantly shaped and enhanced by the contributions of its African American citizens. Chicago has been called the “Second City,” but black Chicago is second to none. Join us as Mr. Thompson provides fascinating stories of African American Chicagoans, from the famous to everyday folks.
