FINALLY we reach the DuSable museum to see, hear and get to know LEDISI. Even in this unbearable weather, the sold out experience was packed! Host Dedry Jones asked questions and gave out unknown info that even had Ledisi asking " OMG! How did U know that?" Like: She is from New Orleans and is a cousin of rapper Lil Wayne. Ledisi waited tables, she was a singing waitress at one point. She was raised Catholic because that's what her ...
It was originally to be named the Lou Rawls Cultural Center, but Alderman Tillman changed the name without telling Rawls. 2 Although it is considered part of the Bronzeville neighborhood it is not part of the Chicago Landmark Black Metropolis-Bronzeville District that is in the Douglas community area. The limestone building, which is located on the same site as a former historic black theatre, 4 has become the subject of controversy stemming from nepotism . After a construction phase marked by delays and cost overruns, 5 it has had a financially disappointing start and has been underutilized by many standards. These ...
Harold Washington Cultural Center in financial jeopardy
Better management of the Harold Washington Cultural Center in Bronzeville and improved economic conditions in the area could help the center become prosperous should it emerge from foreclosure, residents say. Shorebank filed a foreclosure suit seeking $1.3 million in August against Tobacco Road Inc., the nonprofit organization that manages the beleaguered venue. In March 2004, the bank issued the organization a mortgage for $1.4 million. The center has until Oct. 28 to resolve its issues with the bank. Named after the late Mayor Harold Washington, the $19.5 million, 40,000-square-foot building that boasts a broadcast and digital ... market research, surveys and trends

These nine structures are what remain of the "Metropolis," one of the nation's most significant landmarks of African-American urban history. Developed during the first decades of the 20th century, this "city-within-a-city" was home to numerous nationally prominent, African-American-owned and -operated businesses and cultural institutions. This district offered a commercial alternative to the race restrictions and indifference that characterized much of the city during the early part of the 20th century. Between 1910 and 1920, ...

Beautiful and cheap wedding ceremony around Chicago? | Ask MetaFilter
I found myself wishing that there was an option like that around here. I've heard of people having weddings in national/state parks as well. What is the most beautiful, least expensive (or free) place to hold a wedding ceremony in or around the Chicago area? I officiated an amazing wedding at the Garfield Park Conservatory in October. It's really a gorgeous place to get married. The cost ranges from $200 to $3000, sez their website, which is a little broad, but I'd recommend talking to them. The Shakespeare Garden at Northwestern is supposed to be nice (in the summer anyway), and as far as I know it's free. ...

We are planning a trip to chicago, il and are looking for suggestions of where to stay at and what to do. Also, what areas of the city are the most dangerous and where not to go.
