Harold Washington, 42nd Mayor of Chicago, was the city's first African American Mayor. He was a reformer who changed Chicago politics and a person who never lost sight of the place from which he came and the influences that inspired him. This exhibition, drawn largely from the Harold Washington Archives & Collections of the Special Collections & Preservation Division of the Chicago Public Library, highlights three themes from his personal and political legacy - his life, his image, and his work.
