The site where Michael Reese Hospital once stood isn't much to look
at, just a 37-acre swath of overgrown land in Bronzeville, behind a
shoddy chain-link fence.
Developers are itching to build a casino
or perhaps a sports entertainment complex on the city-owned property
located in the shadows of downtown near the south lakefront. But
residents of this historic African-American community have something
grander in mind.
They envision a Barack Obama presidential library.
"This area tells the story of
Chess Records, gospel music, blues and jazz, electrified by Willie
Dixon, Buddy Guy and Muddy Waters," said Harold Lucas, president of the
Black Metropolis Convention & Tourism Council in Bronzeville. "When
people come to Chicago, that's what they want to see. They want to see
the birthplace of Mr. Obama's political career."
Though Obama has
not commented publicly about his plans for a library, every president
since Herbert Hoover has established an archive in his home state to
house papers from his White House tenure. That means the race could come
down to Chicago — the city Obama most recently called home — and
Honolulu — the city where he was born.
If Chicago is selected, the
next hurdle would be to determine where the facility would be built. An
Obama library likely would not open before the end of the decade, but
already it is a hot commodity because of the prestige and economic
vitality it would bring to the community.
