A Taste of Chicago, Illinois

did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT CHICAGO?

  1. Chicago is the largest city in Illinois, and the third most populous city in the United States, with over 2.8 million people living within city limits.

  2. The first known non-indigenous permanent settler in Chicago, Jean Baptiste Point du Sable, is believed to be of African and European decent.

  3. The 1920s saw a major expansion in industry. The availability of jobs attracted African Americans from the South. Between 1910 and 1930, the black population of Chicago increased from 44,103 to 233,903. Arriving in the hundreds of thousands during the Great Migration, the newcomers had an immense cultural impact. It was during this wave that Chicago became a center for jazz, with King Oliver leading the way.

  4. In 1983, Harold Washington became the first African American to be elected to the office of mayor, in one of the closest mayoral elections in Chicago. After Washington won the Democratic primary, racial motivations caused a few Democratic alderman and ward committeemen to back the Republican candidate Bernard Epton, who ran on the race-baiting slogan Before it's too late.

  5. Buckingham Fountain anchors the downtown park along the lakefront. The University of Chicago Oriental Institute has an extensive collection of ancient Egyptian and Near Eastern archaeological artifacts. Other museums and galleries in Chicago include the Chicago History Museum, the DuSable Museum of African American History, and the Museum of Contemporary Art.

  6. The Joffrey Ballet and Chicago Festival Ballet perform in various venues, including the Harris Theater in Millennium Park. Chicago is home to several other modern and jazz dance troupes, such as the Hubbard Street Dance Chicago. Other live music genre which are part of the city's cultural heritage include Chicago blues, Chicago soul, jazz, and gospel. The city is the birthplace of house music and is the site of an influential hip-hop scene.

  7. The city lies within the humid continental climate zone, and experiences four distinct seasons. Summers are warm and humid , with a July daily average of 75.5 °F. In a normal summer temperatures exceed 90 °F on 21 days. Winters are cold, snowy, and windy, with some sunny days, and with a January average of 23.5 °F.

(BPRW) Grammy-Nominated Recording Artist Raheem DeVaughn and R&B Vocalist Goapele Join Forces with AHF and South Side Help Center to Promote Women’s Sexual Health and Responsibility with the RISE Above Campaign

- Congresswoman Robin Kelly [IL-2] To Speak at Saturday, June 17 event -

Raheem DeVaughn


(Black PR Wire) CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE) --Grammy-nominated R&B recording artist Raheem DeVaughn and R&B/neo-soul artist Goapele have joined forces with AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), the Reed For Hope Foundation, WORLD and Chicago-based South Side Help Center (SSHC) to present “RISE Above”, a national sexual health awareness campaign, on Saturday, June 17th at 7:00 p.m. at Park West, located at 322 West Armitage Ave. This “women’s only” event is free and open to the public, but attendees must register online for tickets at riseabovehiv.org. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.

The event will feature an intimate evening of live performances, conversation, free massages, giveaways and more.

Inspired by the late Dr. Maya Angelou’s powerful and impactful poem, “Still I Rise”, the RISE Above campaign focuses on eliminating HIV-related stigma by educating and empowering women of color about healthy relationships, sexuality and wellness. Launched in Oakland, CA in early March 2017 as a part of National Women & Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, the campaign will come to Chicago on Saturday, June 17th prior to National HIV/AIDS Testing Day (June 27).

On September 21, the RISE Above campaign tour will also hold an event in Cleveland, OH before culminating in Atlanta, GA in early November.

Heart & Soul magazine, a national publication dedicated to the health and well-being of women of color, has signed on as a national media partner for the campaign.

According to current statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 1 in 4 individuals living with HIV in the United States are women. Black/African American and Hispanic/Latina women continue to be disproportionately affected by HIV, compared with women of other races/ethnicities. Of the total estimated number of women living with diagnosed HIV at the end of 2013, 61% (137,504) were African American, 17% (39,177) were white, and 17% (38,664) were Hispanics/Latinas.

“Across our country, women of color from all backgrounds continue to be impacted disproportionately by HIV and other sexually transmitted infections,” said Vanessa Smith, executive director of South Side Help Center. “As we celebrate 30 years of service to communities across Chicago, we are pleased to have our own Congresswoman Robin Kelly, who recently co-founded the Congressional Black Caucus on Black Women & Girls, join us for this event. We’re also excited to partner with Goapele and Raheem DeVaughn, two amazing artists who are using their visibility to bring awareness to these issues. Bringing together black women and inspiring them to break through stigma and become both sexually educated and empowered to ‘rise above HIV’ is a goal we all share.”

(BPRW) AHF Welcomes Dr. Danica Wilson to its Chicago Healthcare Centers

Respected longtime Chicago Area HIV Specialist to see patients at AHF’s Hyde Park and South Side locations

 Dr. Danica Wilson


(Black PR Wire) CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) today announces that Danica Wilson, MD has joined its Chicago healthcare provider team. She will be serving patients at AHF’s Hyde Park Healthcare Center at 1515 E. 52nd Place and its South Side location at 2600 S.

Dr. Wilson is a graduate of Tennessee State University in Nashville, TN and received her medical degree from Ross University in Dominica, West Indies. She has served as a physician at Howard Brown Health Center in Chicago before joining Christian Community Health Center in 2014. Since 2015, Dr. Wilson has provided care at a private practice in Avondale.

“I am so excited to join AHF and continue providing exceptional care to Chicago’s LGBT community and people living with HIV/AIDS,” said Dr. Wilson. “My goal is to help our patients achieve complete total wellness in their lives and empower them to stay in treatment and keep a positive attitude about their futures.”

“As AHF continues to expand our operations in the U.S. and internationally, we are honored when we can have experienced and highly-regarded doctors like Dr. Wilson join our family to provide exceptional care to our patients,” said Donna Tempesta, vice president of AHF’s Northern Region. “Dr. Wilson’s appointment is also significant for AHF because it allows us to continue to leverage our local presence and expand our services to areas of greatest need in the Chicago area.”

This month, AHF also announced its new partnership with CALOR, formerly a division of Anixter Center, to expand CALOR’s HIV/AIDS and STD services to the local Latino and Hispanic community. The organization has also partnered with the South Side Help Center since February 2015.

According to the City of Chicago’s Department of Public Health 2015 HIV/STI Surveillance Report, the most recent report, while new HIV infection diagnoses are declining overall in Chicago, blacks and Latinos still have a higher new HIV infection rate than white residents. Also, since 2010, non-Hispanic Whites and Hispanics have accounted for increasing proportions of gonorrhea infections and primary and secondary syphilis cases.

American Writers Museum Announces March 2017 Opening in Prime Chicago Location

- First museum of its kind in United States, dedicated to American writers both past and present, opening early next year on Chicago’s famed Michigan Avenue -

(CHICAGO – April 12, 2016) – The United States’ rich cultural landscape will expand early next year when the American Writers Museum (AWM) opens its doors in March 2017. The first and only museum of its kind in the nation, American Writers Museum, located at 180 North Michigan Avenue, will engage the public in celebrating American writers, and exploring their influence on our history, identity, culture, and daily lives.

“I enthusiastically support the efforts to place a national writers museum in Chicago,” said Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

Showcasing the personal stories and literary works of diverse American writers, from Mark Twain to Dr. Seuss, the interactive, high-tech museum is expected to draw up to 120,000 visitors annually. The museum’s esteemed curating team and National Advisory Council are working closely with internationally renowned museum and exhibit companies in the museum’s development. American Writers Museum is also collaborating with more than 50 authors’ homes and museums around the U.S., now AWM Affiliates, that will support its mission with author-specific knowledge and expertise, and foster an exchange of ideas and experiences.

The museum’s themed galleries, interactive exhibits, educational programs, and special events will change regularly to continually surprise and engage visitors of all ages. They will come face-to-face with great writers using their zip codes in Writers Hall; accompany roving writers such as Kerouac and Steinbeck on their literary travels; and “visit” writers’ homes and fictional sites, such as “Tara,” “Cannery Row,” and “The House of the Seven Gables” in Nation of Writers. Exhibits such as The Mind of a Writer, A Writer’s Room, and Word Play will de-mystify famed writers’ lives and methodologies and invite visitor creativity with games and other immersive offerings. Readers Hall will host films, talks, readings, and presentations to school and other groups.

“We are thrilled to have found the perfect space in the heart of downtown Chicago, just steps from the city’s major attractions,” says AWM founder and President, Malcolm E. O’Hagan. “The American Writers Museum will become a beloved attraction for Chicago residents and visitors from all over the world, and will provide an exciting and unprecedented opportunity to showcase our great writers and their works in one of the nation’s most culturally rich cities.”

JULIA AND JENNIFER HUDSON’S ANNUAL HATCH DAY CELEBRATION HELPS THOUSANDS OF CHICAGO CHILDREN

FOUNDATION PROVIDED School supplIES for Thousands of CHICAGO students in need

Jennifer Hudson




CHICAGO, IL- AUGUST 14, 2015 - Julia and Jennifer Hudson hosted thousands of students at their Annual Hatch Day Celebration on behalf of their Julian D. King Gift Foundation. The event took place at the Ray & Joan Kroc Corps Community Center on Friday, August 14th in Chicago. The annual celebration was held in honor of Julia’s son and Jennifer’s nephew, Julian D. King, on what would have been his 14th birthday and the year he would have graduated middle school.

Jennifer Hudson




Thousands of children and their parents started lining up bright and early outside the Kroc Center. Throughout the day, Jennifer, Julia and a team of incredible volunteers greeted kids from throughout the city at the fifth annual event. Students ranging in grades K-12 walked through tables piled high with supplies for the upcoming school year, picking exactly what they needed from their list and stuffing gifted back packs, all provided by the Foundation and its supporters.

Jennifer Hudson




“It is so important for the children of our community to know we are here to help any way we can,” said Jennifer Hudson. “That can make all the difference. We know that by providing these essentials, we’re helping to prepare the next generation of Chicago to grow in a more positive environment and work toward a more exciting future.”

“We want these kids to be excited about starting school,” said Julia Hudson. “We don't want families to worry about these expenses. We want them to have everything they need to be successful at school in Julian's honor.”

Jennifer Hudson




In 2009, a form of “Hatch Day” started inside the basement of a church where two thousand Chicago children in need were given a backpack with every school supply on their list. Each year, more and more children are helped, with the Foundation setting a new personal record of children helped. Everything from calculators, to scissors, notebooks, pencils, pens, paper, protractors and binders were all available for the students, along with music, entertainment and treats. It was, in part, with community support that the Julian D. King Gift Foundation was able to launch another successful Hatch Day and provide materials for the children of Chicago to start the new school year off with the materials needed to succeed.

ABOUT THE JULIAN D. KING GIFT FOUNDATION:

In 2008, Jennifer and Julia created the Julian D. King Gift Foundation in loving memory of Julian. The Foundation acts as a catalyst for change in children’s health, education and welfare and exists to provide stability, support and positive experiences for children of all backgrounds so that they will become productive, confident and happy adults. Each year on August 14th, the Foundation celebrates Julian’s birthday with the Hatch Day event. As a child, Julian would make invitations for his classmates, family and friends every year to celebrate his birthday, which he called “Hatch Day.” Julian never defined the phrase to anyone, but today the words have more meaning than ever. Julian loved schools and wanted to be a doctor when he grew up, referring to himself as “Doctor King.” He would finish his homework every night without need for encouragement and even made his bedtime earlier so he would never risk being late for school. Hatch Day also honors Jennifer and Julia’s brother and mother as a reflection of the kind of people they were. When Jennifer and Julia pass out cupcakes and goody bags, they think of their brother, who used to barbecue for the whole neighborhood. And it’s their mother they honor by helping the mothers and fathers and children who can’t afford what they need. As the Foundation grows, Jennifer and Julia aim to grow their events and fundraising efforts to help children.

*More information and a link to donate to the Foundation can be found on the organization’s website at www.JulianDKingGiftFoundation.org

    JENNIFER HUDSON’S ANNUAL “HATCH DAY”


    In 2009, the annual “Hatch Day” event celebrated its inaugural launch where two thousand Chicago children in need were given a backpack with every school supply on their list. Each year, more and more children are helped, with the Foundation setting a new personal record of children helped. Everything from calculators, to scissors, notebooks, pencils, pens, paper, protractors and binders were all available for the students, along with music, entertainment and treats. It was, in part, with community support that the Julian D. King Gift Foundation was able to launch another successful Hatch Day and provide materials for the children of Chicago to start the new school year off with the materials needed to succeed.
