Remembering Harold Washington

Harold Washington memorial

Harold Washington died 20 years ago today. This memorial, with a photo of a young, handsome and charismatic Harold Washington, sits just north of E 87th St on S Vernon Ave.

An inscription that’s become very faint over time records that it was sponsored by the people of Vernon Ave, 83rd St to 87th St.

Real estate developer Dempsey Travis remembers his childhood friend Harold Washington.
