Book Synopsis
An insider's account of the campaigns and mayoral administrations of Harold Washington, Chicago's first African-American mayor.

"A gripping account by Chris Chandler of Washington's historic campaign, his tumultuous time as mayor, the civil rights movement that preceded him, and the transformation which followed... Chris Chandler adds to our understanding of the Washington movement and the broader struggle for transformation. He provides us a front row seat from which to see from the inside this pivotal time in our history."
