CHICAGO'S DUSABLE MUSEUM of African-American just shared on IG this animated gif you see below showing buttons from the election of the Windy City's first Black mayor - Harold Washington. They posted this exactly 34 years after his victory in the Democratic primary for Mayor of Chicago where he faced off against incumbent Mayor Jane Byrne and future Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley. Of course Washington went onto become mayor after that.
In a later post we will hear a lot about the namesake of this museum. The DuSable name has great significance to Chicago history.
