Harold Washington

2013 marks the 30th Anniversary of Harold Washington’s election as Chicago’s first black mayor. The Mayoral debates of 1983 transformed a relatively unknown congressman into a political phenomenon.

The Museum has collected an impressive collection of Harold Washington’s television and radio appearances that helped change the face of political leadership in Chicago. The series will include in person campaign related appearances, Town Hall meetings, campaign commercials, and coverage of his death in November of 1987. For listings visit Museum.TV
