On July 5, Don Rose–writer, political strategist and activist extraordinaire–showed up to talk about his life and times in Chicago politics over the last 60-something years.
The great videographer Chris Buddy–back from paternity leave–was on hand to capture the show.
Among other things, Don told the story of his work with Mayor Harold Washington and Martin Luther King Jr. and against the Daley Machine. This is must viewing for anyone interested in Chicago politics.
