Limited Edition 18” x 18” Throw Pillow

Lawyer, politician, first African American Mayor of Chicago and Heavyweight Champ!

Round 1: Characterized by ugly, racially polarized battles dubbed “Council Wars”, Harold’s first term was a relentless struggle with the Vrdolyak Twenty-nine (led by “the Eddies”) who refused to enact his reform legislation. Only Washington’s fancy footwork and sharp veto hook kept him off the ropes.

Round 2: Harold came out swinging. The Eddies hit the mat. Vrdolyak went down a class becoming a Republican. Kelly gave up his parks belt and Burke lost his finance title. Harold Washington wins! TKO! TKO! TKO!
