Bob Howard

I'm saddened by news of the death of Bob Howard, great civil rights attorney and leader in the fight for public school desegregation. My condolences to Sarah, David and the whole family. Bob will be missed.

From this morning's Sun-Times:
Attorney Robert Howard was called one of “the lawyers who reformed Chicago.” Mr. Howard used the law to fight police spying, help desegregate schools, and empower African-American police officers. He also campaigned for the election of two African-American “firsts”: Chicago Mayor Harold Washington and President Barack Obama.

  1. He was, indeed, a great man. Let's keep his legacy alive by continuing to fight against injustice and ensure that the civil rights of ALL Americans are not trampled upon.
