They speak for Chicago’s black community

This is the way it went. The momentum just kept building.

First they talked about what the black news media does in Chicago and what you need to do if you want to get your story told.

Then they talked about what’s news and what matters and then the hands went up in the room Tuesday night at the charming room in the front section of theLittle Black Pearl in Hyde Park, a place where the community gathers to appreciate art and to meet.

And the room kept filling up with people from community organizations business people and teachers and youth leaders and youngsters from high schools and just people walking by the street who looked in the window and saw the media and community gathering going on.
