Police torture survivor Darrell Cannon speaks at the opening celebration of the Chicago Torture Justice Center in Englewood today. The center was created as part of a first-of-its-kind reparations ordinance passed in Chicago in 2015. Holmes is one of over 100 black men and women who, over decades, were tortured into false confessions by police officers under former commander Jon Burge, mostly on the South Side.

May 27, 1933 marked the opening of A Century of Progress, the Chicago World's Fair that ran from 1933-34.  Arthur D. Black, the fourth dean of Northwestern's dental school, organized the World Dental Congress in conjunction with the World's Fair. He also wrote the booklet that went with the dentistry exhibition.  This is a rendering of the architecturally striking Hall of Science that was built for the Fair and which housed the exhibition.  #acenturyofprogress #centuryofprogress #1933 #chicagohistory #chicagoworldsfair #galterlibrary #histmed #dentistry #historyofchicago #specialcollections #architecture
So my sis has been doing some genealogy work. We are 5th and 6th Generation North Shore (ancestors in both #wilmette and #winnetka on both paternal and maternal sides). Super crazy. Anyhow, she found this Trib article from April 1896: two of our teenage relatives died in a fireworks factory explosion in what is now West Wilmette (was unincorporated farmland). CHILD LABOR! HORRIBLE FACTORY CONDITIONS! I knew my hatred of capitalists ran deep for a reason. #chicagotribune #northshorechicago #chicagohistory #vintagetribune #workersrights #labourday
