Historically Black Chicago Neighborhood Wants Obama Presidential Library
From the Associated Press:
Another Chicago neighborhood is seeking to be the future home of the Barack Obama presidential library.
No official plans have been made yet. But residents in the historically black Bronzeville neighborhood say there’s 37 acres there that are a perfect fit.
Harold Lucas is president of the Black Metropolis Convention & Tourism Council in the neighborhood. He tells the Chicago Tribune that the neighborhood is the ideal place to tell the story of the nation’s first black president. Bronzeville is where a number of black leaders, artists and pioneers worked or lived.
