Voice from Community: All Black Aldermen Need to Go!

Get Out

I received an email from my buddy, Jackie, with the subject line screaming, “All Black Aldermen Need to Go!”

How could anyone ignore such a headline?

Although she gave a summary of why she felt that way in the email, I wanted to know more. Listen to our conversation below to learn why she feels that black aldermen should be fired.

What Do You Think?

Based on the conversation above plus your experience with your alderman, do you think Chicago black Aldermen should be fired?

Who is your alderman?
