Oral History Corps Interview Representative Bobby Rush

Shakira Johnson, of the Museum's Oral History Corps, along with Executive Director Lisa Lee, visited Representative Bobby Rush in Washington D.C. to interview him for our on-going oral history project. 

Rush, who grew up in Chicago public housing, was a co-founder of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panthers and worked on creating non-violent, community-centric projects to help African Americans living in Chicago. We are excited to add Bobby Rush's invigorating stories to our archives for future study.
