Tragedy strikes Maywood family twice Dean Stansberry, who wanted justice for murdered stepson, Isiah Scott, killed on July 30 in double homicide

By MICHAEL ROMAIN Editor

On July 23, Dean Stansberry, 38, stood outside of the Family Dollar on the 1000 block of South Madison St. in Maywood to protest the unsolved murder of his stepson, Isiah Scott — the 19-year-old who was

fatally shot just feet away from the store in March. A week later, on July 30, Stansberry himself was murdered outside of his home, on the 1200 block of South 13th Ave. in Maywood. Yarnell M. White, 30, of Maywood, was also killed, according to the

Cook County medical examiner’s office. So far, law enforcement authorities have not indicated whether or not the murders of the two men are connected to Scott’s murder in March. In a written statement, Maywood police See DEAN STANSBERRY on page 3

said that officers responded to calls of shots fired at around 6:22 p.m. When they arrived, they found both men in need of medical assistance. First responders took White and Stansberry to Loyola University Medical Center. Both men were in critical condition by the time they arrived at the hospital, but died shortly afterward. Stansberry was pronounced dead at 7:20 p.m. while White was pronounced dead at 6:50 p.m. Both men died of multiple gunshot wounds and their deaths ruled homicides, according to the medical examiner’s office, which said that White and Stansberry lived on the same block. Since the death of his stepson on March 12 in Maywood, Stansberry and his wife, Kisha, Scott’s mother, had been on a crusade to find Scott’s killers — who they suspected were former friends of the 19-year-old. During an interview in May, Dean and Kisha said that they had even had the alleged murderers, who had been classmates of Scott’s, in their home for dinner. They said that, while many people witnessed the murder and knew the killers, no one had come forward to the police. On July 23, Dean and Kisha gathered with roughly 60 other people at the site of Scott’s murder for a press conference held to condemn the code of silence that the couple said was a contributing factor in Scott’s murder not being solved and to announce the existence of a $5,000 reward for anyone with information leading to an arrest. The reward was made possible, in part, through funds provided by Purpose Over Pain, an organization run out of the Faith Community of St. Sabina that provides support and resources for parents who have lost children to gun violence. Kisha Stansberry is an active member of the organization. Father Michael Pfleger, the pastor of St. Sabina, was at the press conference. Pfleger said that Scott’s “life was lost because we are a country in love with guns and guns are how we handle our arguments. We’ve got to deal with the gun issue. “Secondly, too many people who are witnesses don’t want to be labeled as a snitch,” he said. “The greatest deterrent to violence is catching people who do it and locking them up.” On Tuesday night, after learning of Dean’s murder, Pfleger took to Facebook to condemn the violence again. “[Two] weeks ago i stood at a press conference in Maywood with a family whose son was killed in March. Tonight the Father was killed,” Pfleger wrote. “I’m so Damn Sick of this.....” During last week’s press conference, Dean held up a t-shirt bearing a hashtag that had become the family’s motto over the last few months: #JusticeForIsiah. “The entire town knows who killed him,” Kisha Stansberry said in May. “They’re buzzing. They’re talking about it. But people don’t want to consider themselves a snitch.” Dean said at the time that he places the uncooperative witnesses into two categories: those who don’t want to be labeled a snitch and those who may be afraid of retaliation. He also said confidently that he was not afraid of Scott’s alleged murderers. “We want people to know that the guys who killed Isiah are not those guys,” Dean said. “They weren’t even in a street gang.” Maywood police said they’re currently investigating the case. So far, no one is in custody. If anyone has information that might lead to an arrest, police are requesting they call (708) 450-4450 and ask to speak to Det. R. Brown.

NEWS briefs Westlake-inspired law making hospital closures more difficult goes into effect A new law that took effect this month requires the owners of those facilities to obtain a permit from the state’s Health Facilities and Services Review Board before they can close a hospital, ambulatory surgical treatment center, nursing home or other health care center. It also limits the number of times they can apply to discontinue a category of services to just once every six months. Those new provisions were included in Senate Bill 1739, which Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed into law July 15. The bill was prompted by a controversy in Cook County earlier this year when California-based Pipeline Health announced plans to shut down Westlake Hospital in Melrose Park, a hospital that serves a large number of low-income patients. Pipeline had purchased the 230-bed hospital in January, along with hospitals in Chicago and Oak Park. It initially said it planned to keep Westlake Hospital open, only to reverse that decision within a few weeks. Under a state law known as the Health Facilities Planning Act, operators of health facilities are required to obtain a permit from the review board before they can build a new facility or modify an existing one by demonstrating there is a need for such a facility. But until passage of the new law,

Curricular changes from page 1 The board paid $131,905.74 and $118,876.51 to implement the new math program at West and East, respectively. The new purchase comes months after the district created a textbook adoption committee that included Howard, math department chairs and teachers from both schools. “The committee determined that the current series was not meeting the needs of the students,” according to a memo administrators drafted. “It required a significant amount of supplementation and many teachers found it difficult to implement.” The committee met multiple times throughout the year, with teachers from East and West piloting and reviewing proposed math series that were proposed by two vendors: Pearson and Big Ideas. The committee selected Pearson in March based on a range of criteria, including the extent to which the math series “encourages student participation” in learning, “Makes

they could apply for an exemption from the permitting process in order to close or downsize a facility. Pipeline applied for such an exemption in February, and the review board approved that exemption April 30 on a 7-0 vote. During that period, the village of Melrose Park and Cook County State’s Attorney Kimberly Foxx filed suit seeking to overturn the board’s decision, and in May a Cook County judge issued an order temporarily blocking the closure while the court reviews the case. The new law took effect as soon as Pritzker signed it, but state officials were not immediately able to say whether it would affect the proposed Westlake closure.

Loyola to provide AmeriCorps training to Maywood residents Loyola University Medical Center was recently awarded a $250,000 grant from Illinois AmeriCorps to provide eligible Maywood residents with Certified Nursing Assistant training. The AmeriCorps grant will cover five full-time trainees and 20 part-time trainees, who, along with CNA training, will receive the required uniforms, equipment and a living stipend. They also may be eligible for healthcare and childcare coverage, depending on their income. “These members will provide service by supporting patient care at Loyola Medical Center,” according to an AmeriCorps

use of modern technologies that encourage students to apply learning to real world situations” and “promotes growth towards mastery of standards and allows for flexible pacing.” District officials said that teacher training the new math series, along with teacher resource materials, will be available throughout the next school year. They added that those resources should make the program “easy to implement.”

D209 board votes to renew $243K credit recovery program During the July 16 meeting, the D209 board also voted unanimously to approve a new, 3-year agreement with Edgenuity to provide online courses for students seeking to recover credits, and/or benefit from academic intervention and acceleration. District officials, who also entered into a 3-year agreement with Edgenuity in 2016, said that the program has been successful. “It has served as a source of recovery for afterschool and summer programs, as well as, district sponsored alternative programs,” district officials explained in a memo. Officials said that this year, three students were able to graduated early due to credits

During an interview last week, Loyola representatives said that once the AmeriCorps members complete their training at Loyola, they’ll earn a CNA certificate that’s good anywhere in the United States, except Tennessee and North Carolina. “The goal of the grant is workforce development and to help members of the community learn skills they can take anywhere,” said Debbie Brill and Amy O’Malley, program directors for the AmeriCorps grant. “This partnership between Loyola and the Maywood community benefits; Maywood residents with their new skills, Loyola with a pipeline of potential new employees and most importantly the Loyola patients.” Brill and O’Malley said that applications for the training program won’t be posted on the AmeriCorps website, where community members will be able to apply for the 25 spots, until Sept. 1. In the meantime, interested applicants should email questions to care@ luhs.org.

Maywood approves nearly $1M in roadway improvements, $107K for cornice work on ‘200 Building’ During a regular meeting on July 9, the Maywood Board of Trustees unanimously approved a $107,000 contract with John Tylka

they earned by completing Edgenuity courses. “Edgenuity has proved to be an excellent investment for us,” said Howard during the July 16, adding that more than 1,700 students have enrolled in the program over each of the last three years. The program, she said, has a 75 percent completion rate. She said that, although the program is primarily used for credit recovery, teachers can also use it for content. For instance, students in the district can use Edgenuity to access AP coursework, said D209 board President Ned Wagner. “I like the idea of challenging families,” Wagner said. “If you have a student who is falling behind for graduation, your student has a laptop, they’ve got software; we can point you in the right direction for inexpensive internet service — let’s do it.” The challenge, district officials said, is getting more parents to know about the resource. District 209 Supt. Jesse Rodriguez said during the meeting that Edgenuity is another tool for advancing equity in the district. “Two years ago, we reinvested about $1.4 million for personalized learning centers to address credit attainment, so this is another tool, another way to push that agenda by

Falco Inc., of Franklin Park, to install the new cornice on the Maywood Multipurpose Building (formerly the Masonic Temple), 200 S. 5th Ave. in Maywood. The $107,000 contract includes the use of new metal. It was the second-lowest bid submitted. John Tylka also submitted a $99,000 bid that would use existing metal. ATP Enterprise Group, Inc., of Northfield, submitted a $310,000 bid that entailed using existing metal. The facade improvement project will be funded through the village’s faced program, out of an escrow account from the expired St. Charles TIF. The board also approved a $938,554 contract with M&J Asphalt Paving Co. Inc. for the following roadway resurfacing projects:     

Wilcox Street | 4th Ave. to 1st Ave. Second Ave. | Wilcox St. to Madison St. Second Ave. | Lexington St. to Bataan Dr. Sixth Ave. | Rice St. to Hugh Muir Lane Eighth Ave. | Chicago Ave. to Rice St.

The village received three proposals, with M&J Asphalt being the lowest responsive bidder. Trig Construction Inc. submitted a $990,193 proposal while Martam Construction Inc. submitted a $1,209,685 proposal. Trustee Melvin Lightford, who had phoned into the meeting from another location, was not on the phone during the vote. The contracts were voted on as part of a larger omnibus agenda.

D209 board approves contract with electrical supplier, expects nearly $800K in savings The board also unanimously voted on July 16 to approve a multiyear agreement with Interstate Gas Supply Inc., in a move that district officials said could bring nearly $800,000 in electricity savings over three roughly years. District officials said that they had previously been paying for electricity on a month-to-month basis. “At the time the contract went into this status, contracted rates were higher than the month-to-month rates,” officials explained in a memo. “Now, however, contracted rates are significantly lower than month-to-month rates.” The contract with Interstate Gas, which will run from September 2019 to August 2022, could save the district $264,000 each year due to the lower rates.

Former Maywood mayor honored during surprise tribute Henderson Yarbrough caught off-guard during Congressman Davis’ Aug. 1 town hall By MICHAEL ROMAIN Editor

During a town hall forum hosted by Congressman Danny K. Davis (7th) on Aug. 1 at Village Council Chambers, 125 S. 5th Ave. in Maywood, elected officials from a range of taxing bodies and levels of government gathered to celebrate Henderson Yarbrough — the longtime civil servant and former Maywood mayor who retired from public life this year. The seemingly impromptu celebration was actually a surprise orchestrated by Yarbrough’s wife, Cook County Clerk Karen Yarbrough, who sported a poker face while sitting beside her husband before Davis asked the former mayor to come before the crowd of roughly 100 people. Davis then read a Congressional resolution honoring Yarbrough that he read on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives. Davis was followed by other elected officials, family members and friends who thanked Yarbrough for his service and lauded his calm, poised demeanor — a characteristic that helped endear him even to those with whom he had political disagreements. “When Yarbrough served as mayor of Maywood, we had our agreements and disagreements, but there was always respect among each other,” said state Rep. Emanuel

“Chris” Welch (7th). “And since I’ve become state representative, he’s been one of the people most encouraging to me … As a black man in the community, this gentleman was the role model for us.” Welch and 1st District Cook County Commissioner Brandon Johnson said that they instructed their offices to draft resolutions that will be presented before the Illinois House and the Cook County Board of Commissioners in the coming weeks. Bellwood Mayor Andre Harvey also read a proclamation drafted in tribute to Yarbrough. “If it wasn’t for men like you, I wouldn’t be the person I am today,” Harvey said. Maywood Village Clerk Viola Mims, who is a realtor, said that Yarbrough “is a person you can speak to and understand that whatever he says has a meaning behind it.” Tim Curry, a former Maywood police chief, said that Yarbrough “was a great leader under my tenure.” Arnettra Burnside, a Maywood Park District commissioner, said that “I wouldn’t be a park district commissioner if it had not been for the opportunities” that Yarbrough and his wife presented her, before lauding the couple for helping her daughter and her brother advance their education and career, respectively. Kajaria Yarbrough, the former mayor’s niece, said that her uncle “was the best uncle

I could have ever asked for,” adding that “Uncle Hank” was also a surrogate father to her and other relatives. “You could go to him for advice, love and attention,” she said. “He’s your J. BOSTON biggest cheerleader PAYING HOMAGE: State Rep. Welch, Congressman Davis, Henderson and supporter. His heart and home Yarbrough, Mayor Harvey and Commissioner Johnson during the was always open Aug. 1 town hall. … I wish I had his of the Maywood-Proviso Rotary Club, calmness.” Dominique Jeter, a young college student started working for the village of Maywood who lives in Maywood, said that Yarbrough in 1983 as a special projects coordinator in “taught me everything when it came to the community development department politics and government,” adding that under Joe Freelon, the village’s first Africanwhen she graduates, she plans to return American mayor. Yarbrough would go on to serve as mayor to Maywood and “run for trustee in Mr. from 2005 until 2013. He also served a term Yarbrough’s honor.” Rev. Joseph Richardson, the longtime as village trustee from 2015 to 2019, when pastor of St. James Community Baptist he announced that he would not run for Church of Broadview, where Yarbrough is a reelection. On Thursday, Yarbrough expressed deacon and longtime member, also attended genuine surprise. the tribute. “This was totally unexpected,” he said. “I “This young man you’re honoring — we love him dearly,” said Richardson before adding don’t know how my wife kept it secret.” that his congregation “is very proud of you.” CONTACT: thevillagefreepress@gmail.com Yarbrough, who is currently the president

Davis talks reparations, immigration during town hall In Maywood, Congressman addresses range of issue

By MICHAEL ROMAIN Editor

Congressman Danny K. Davis addressed a range of concerns brought to him by area residents during his town hall held at Village Council Chambers, 125 S. 5th Ave. in Maywood, on Aug. 1. The following is a summary of some issue areas that Davis addressed during Thursday’s event, which attracted roughly 50 people.

Reparations Maywood Trustee Miguel Jones wanted to know the status of the reparations debate in Washington D.C. Davis said that he signed onto HR 40 — a bill introduced by former Michigan congressman John Conyers, who Davis called his “dear friend.” The bill would establish the Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for AfricanAmericans. “Among other requirements, the commission shall identify (1) the role of federal and state governments in

supporting the institution of slavery, (2) forms of discrimination in the public and private sectors against freed slaves and their descendants, and (3) lingering negative effects of slavery on living AfricanAmericans and society,” according to a summary of the bill at Congress.gov. Congress considered the bill for the first time during a hearing in June. Conyers introduced the legislation in 1989. “People are beginning to at least openly talk about it,” Davis said, before noting that similar measures are in the works in Springfield and Chicago. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, some Chicago aldermen are planning to introduce a draft reparations ordinance in September that calls for the city to dole out a variety of resources, such as “free public transportation on the CTA” and “free water filters to deal with high lead levels” to address the lingering effects of slavery in the African American community. And National Public Radio Illinois reported that the House Judiciary Committee held hearings in June on reparations for African

Americans. Davis said that one prominent sign that the debate on reparations is becoming increasingly mainstream is that many current Democratic presidential candidates have thrown their support toward the idea. “That means they’ve already conducted polls,” Davis said. “These professional politicians wouldn’t say they are in favor of some form of reparations unless they’ve scoped it out.”

Teaching African American history in schools Maywood resident Barbara Cole asked Davis why more school districts aren’t teaching African American history. “Research has said that if African American children knew this history, they would do better in school,” Cole said. Davis said that state law already requires school districts to teach Black history, but there hasn’t been much movement by districts toward complying with the law. “Chicago Public Schools pretended a few years ago that they were getting ready to start [adequately teaching Black history],”

Davis said. “They gave a contract to Harold Washington’s brother, a curator at DuSable Museum, and they prepared a curriculum and paid him money to do it. I ain’t heard nothing about nobody teaching African American history yet.” Davis said that the only way school districts will get more serious about teaching Black history in a comprehensive way is if African American lawmakers, particularly at the state level, “really expressed outrage.”

Immigration reform Rose Ocampo, a member of the Maywoodbased Coalition for Spiritual and Public Leadership, asked Davis what Congress is doing to stop separating families at the U.S.Mexican border. Davis said he is “pro-immigration” and supports comprehensive immigration reform, adding that “it’s unconscionable that our immigration people would separate children from their parents at the border.”

River Forest, protesting rail project, reaches across borders Residents protesting $100M third rail expansion project lobby village officials in Proviso Township By NONA TEPPER Wednesday Journal

Last June, River Forest residents noticed workers cutting down 17 trees along the Union Pacific railroad tracks. Then they saw workers installing a gravel road up to the train line, where trucks started rolling up and down daily and trespassers began climbing and strolling along the rail bed. These indicators were the first residents had of the Union Pacific (UP) and Metra Third Rail Expansion project, a more than $100 million initiative that aims to install additional train tracks, in an effort to leave the 110 Metra and UP trains that power through River Forest daily with shorter idling time and fewer delays. Locally, the project installs 1.8 miles of new train line from UP’s Vale Interlocking facility in River Forest — just east of the Desplaines River — to 25th Avenue in Melrose Park. Neighbors claim the project has been pushed forward without any concern for those who live nearby, and allege that UP lied to Congressional leaders about noise levels in order to use taxpayer dollars to complete the project. “People care about this issue. They don’t want to see someone lose their life on the track level or noise pollution,” said Megan

Forest property owners stretching their fight beyond the village’s borders, reaching out to Melrose Park, Maywood and Bellwood officials — along with those in state and local elected office — to lobby for a safer rail environment from the Omaha, Nebraskabased transportation company. Gary Mack, spokesman for the ALEXA ROGALS village of Melrose FIGHTING UP: Congressman Davis will hold a town hall meeting Park and Mayor Ron on Aug. 27 to discuss resident concerns, particularly around Serpico, said the municipality will do what they say is an inadequate barrier off the access road. “what they can to mitigate the safety and noise impact of the Keskitalo, a River Forest resident. “I think it’s important to organize project.” But he added that, because most around this because if you’re looking at it of the property surrounding the third-rail in isolation, on a village-by-village level, project in Melrose Park is industrial, “very it can seem like a small problem, a micro- few residents are impacted.” “The issue for River Forest is much more issue. But when you look at the numbers of issues, it becomes a bigger issue. So having poignant than it is for Melrose Park because a central voice beyond that makes a little the mayor said really very few residents are impacted by the third rail project. … It’s not more impact.” Keskitalo is just one of the 36 River nearly as big a concern, but it is a concern

and [Serpico] does want to lend support to River Forest,” Mack said. Residents have formed a nonprofit, the River Forest Rail and Traffic Pollution Protection Group, in an effort to get UP to remove an unplanned access road they built in River Forest, place a permanent barrier at the site and install a tall, soundproof fence along the tracks. More than 250 residents have already signed a petition articulating these concerns to UP, and Village President Cathy Adduci, along with the village’s attorney, have also sent the train company a letter, urging them to comply with neighbors’ demands. Residents have also had two meetings with UP representatives where they have voiced their concerns, but they said the train company is not open to debate. “Safety is Union Pacific’s top priority, and we are proud of our safety record,” a UP spokeswoman said in statement to Wednesday Journal. “We work to be a good neighbor, and if there are concerns, we are open to continued dialogue with the village to address the root cause. Again, I want to stress the project is a benefit for Chicago — the nation’s largest rail hub.” CONTACT: thevillagefreepress@gmail.com

Clergy’s summer job program gets results PTMAN’s annual employment program gave 15 students work opportunities

By TOM HOLMES Contributing Reporter

Jayla Johnson just completed her summer internship at Forest Park Bank, where she interned four hours a day, four days of the week, for four weeks of the summer. Johnson came to the bank as a participant in the Proviso Township Ministers’ Alliance Network (PTMAN) summer jobs for youth program, known as 4+4+4. Johnson said she believed the experience prepared her for life after Bolingbrook High School, where she is a sophomore. “When I get a real job, I will not be nervous on the first day,” Johnson said. “I will go in there with confidence.” All summer interns are paid $518 for the four-week commitment. In Johnson’s case, the bank not only funded her internship, but provided the site. She isn’t the first intern to spend time at Forest Park Bank — this fall, the bank will celebrate its 11th year partnering with the intern program at Christ the King High School on the West Side of Chicago. This summer was the bank’s first time working with 4+4+4, however.

Johnson worked in the operations department, where she filled all the copy machines with paper when she arrived in the morning. She then prepared daily notices to be mailed to customers, scanned documents for loan services, performed clerical work with the safe deposit box, and prepped bank statements to be mailed to borrowers. “I would get stuff done quickly,” she said with a laugh. “They would tell me to slow down, because I would go so fast.” Don Offermann, senior vice president of business development and human resources at the bank, said Johnson performed these assignments exactly as assigned and had to be told only once how to do them. Staff in the operations department were pleased with the help that Johnson provided, he said. “Jayla was a terrific worker,” Offermann said, “and a welcomed helper for the bank.” He added: “Our experience with the PTMAN 4+4+4 program this summer was very positive, and we are looking forward to being part of the program next summer.” Johnson wasn’t the only student to intern through 4+4+4 this summer. This fall, Joseph Price will be a sophomore at Chicago Virtual Charter School. Part

of what he got from his internship at the Maywood Park District this summer was that “responsibilities matter.” He added, with a laugh, that he liked the PTMAN program “because I like money.” Rev. Albert Johnson heads the PTMAN summer jobs program, which has now finished its fourth year. Its success has inspired DuPage Unitarian Universalist Church in west suburban Naperville to institute a similar program, which they call the Smile Project. Each year, Rev. Johnson said more students realize their potential through 4+4+4. “I’m talking about the tremendous impact,” he said, “that this program has had on their self-esteem and confidence. We emphasize during our orientation with the students how they should conduct themselves and have had no complaints from the intern sites.” Valdimir Talley, chief of the Maywood Police Department, attends almost every PTMAN monthly meeting. This year, he said the police department was “honored to have two excellent young men assigned from the PTMAN 4+4+4 program.” “More than just work experience, our

department took the youth on an enrichment experience to meet with the Lieutenant Governor. This is a positive program that I support 110 percent,” Talley said. Rev. Johnson credits Bishop Dr. Reginald Saffo for being the moving force that got the summer youth program started in 2016. He quoted Rev. Saffo as believing, “If we believe in a God who can create anything, and that God is in us, then we should be able to do for ourselves. We have a moral obligation to take the leadership in doing this for our youth.” Rev. Johnson added that PTMAN’s motto is “if the community doesn’t move, then we move the community.” Perhaps the only disappointment for Rev. Johnson this year was that PTMAN was only able to raise money to sponsor 15 students, compared to the 30 last year. “We had more sites available,” he said, “and had more students who applied, but we were unable to have them participate because of the lack of funding. We hope that in 2020, more businesses will come forward with the $518 needed to sponsor a student.” CONTACT: thevillagefreepress@gmail.com

A century later, reflecting on the 1919 Chicago race riots On July 27, 1919, a teenager’s drowning rocked a city

By MICHAEL ROMAIN Editor

One hundred years ago — on Sunday, July 27, 1919 — Eugene Williams, 17, drowned in Lake Michigan after a white mob hurled stones at the Black teenager, because he was swimming on the “white side” of a segregated beach near 29th Street on Chicago’s South Side. Williams’ death touched off a week-long riot on the South Side that resulted in 38 fatalities — 23 Blacks and 15 whites — and more than 500 people injured. But the riot was only the symptom of much deeper racial strife in a city characterized by extreme residential segregation and prejudice. According to historian Elaine Lewinnek, the 1910s were years when the boundaries of the Chicago metropolitan area’s residential apartheid were hardening. While some Blacks in the area were confined to segregated parts of suburbs like Maywood and Chicago Heights, most “were C confined to a narrow four-block strip around State Street on Chicago’s South Side known as the Black Belt. Half of Chicago’s blacks lived there in 1900, while 90% of Chicago’s blacks lived there by 1930.” In the decade between 1910 and 1920, “Chicago’s Black population grew from about 44,000 to nearly 110,000 — still just 4 percent of the city’s 2.7 million residents — as Southern Blacks moved north to flee Jim Crow laws,” according to a recent Chicago Magazine article marking the 100th anniversary of the riot. As Blacks flowed into the city, however, they were confined to an area “from 22nd Street (now Cermak Road) south to 39th Street (now Pershing Road) and from Wentworth Avenue east to State Street” — the so-called Black Belt. By 1920, according to historian Arnold Hirsch — the late author of the seminal 1983 book Making the Second Ghetto: Race and Housing in Chicago: 1940-1960 — “the Black Belt extended roughly to 55th Street, between Wentworth and Cottage Grove avenues. Approximately 85% of the city’s

nearly 110,000 Blacks lived in this area. A second colony existed on the West Side between Austin, Washington Boulevard, California Avenue, and Morgan Street.” As the boundaries of this racially manufactured area frayed and Blacks started moving beyond the ghetto created for them, the white-on-Black violence increased. “In the two years leading up to the riot, bombs were thrown at two dozen homes of Black Chicagoans,” according to Chicago Magazine. “The police solved none of these crimes. A 6-year-old girl named Garnetta Ellis died in one explosion. And early in the summer of 1919, several attacks on

housing segregation were governed by the very racism that had effectively segregated the 29th Street beach. For instance, the federal government supplied funds to build more housing in the city, but it also maintained a so-called neighborhood composition rule, “which prevented government projects from altering the racial composition of their host

and Englewood also witnessed the crumbling of what were, by 1945, traditional borders. On the West Side, the exodus of Jews from North Lawndale created a vacuum that was quickly filled by a housing-starved Black population.” David Cherry, a program director with the All Stars Project of Chicago — an

Blacks by white mobs were reported on the South Side.” After World War II, according to Hirsch, a “second ghetto” — one much larger than the Black Belt — was created “with government sanction and support.” After the 1919 riot, national leaders, including President Woodrow Wilson, called for racial harmony. Racism, nonetheless, persisted. Even progressive solutions to

neighborhoods,” Hirsch explains. During the 1940s and 1950s, Hirsch writes, “the Black Belt’s boundaries, drawn during the Great Migration, were shattered” — and an even larger Black ghetto rose up in its wake. “To the east, the Cottage Grove Avenue barrier — which had been buttressed by the activity of local improvement associations after the 1919 riot — fell as Blacks entered the communities of Oakland, Kenwood, Hyde Park, and Woodlawn in large numbers. “To the south and southwest, Park Manor

organization that provides resources to young people in low-income areas of the city — said last month that the city’s segregated past was prologue to its present. He was nonetheless optimistic about the city’s future. “What happened in 1919 set the tone of the next 100 years of racism, segregation, isolation, poverty and disinvestment,” said Cherry. “The next 100 years is going to be different — starting today.” CONTACT: thevillagefreepress@gmail.com
