Harold Washington Library is hosting an exhibition of its namesake. “Called to the Challenge: The Legacy of Harold Washington” is an ongoing showcase. The three exhibits highlight themes from Harold Washington’s political and personal life.
Chicago’s first and only black mayor, Washington died in 1987 during his second term. The exhibit draws mostly from the Harold Washington Archives & Collections of the Chicago Public Library. For more information, call H.W. Library, 400 S. State St.: 312- 747-4300, or visit chicagopubliclibrary.org.
