Harold Washington and the Neighborhoods
Wiewel, Wim; Clavel, Pierre
When Wim Wiewel and Pierre Clavel co-edited Harold Washington and the Neighborhoods (Rutgers University Press, 1991), they also began videotaping interviews with potential chapter authors, initially (in 1989) with the video done by Elizabeth Montgomery. Wiewel took the lead on the video project, not only supporting Clavel's year co-editing the book at the Center for Urban Economic Development--he was director--but getting funding from the Chicago Community Trust for more discussion and video, including a small conference where Washington, City Hall officials, and community activists came together to reminisce about the experience. This video is the result. Footage of Washington speaking in campaigns and as Mayor is combined with clips from interviews and the conference, where participants include Maria Cerda, Donna Ducharme, Doug Gills, Elizabeth Hollander, John Kretzman, Greg Longhini, Robert Mier, Alton Miller, Kari Moe, Arturo Vazquez, Judy Walker, and Timothy Wright.
