Take a ride through the west and south sides of this city, and you, like in Stevie Wonder’s Living for the City will see the blatant disparity in income Continued on Page 8 August is National Black Business Month and The Dr. Webb Evans Community Development Corporation and the Temple Of Mercy Association presents "THE ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL MARCUS GARVEY HOLIDAY CELEBRA- TION" An All Day Celebration Thursday, August 31, 2017, 11am till 7pm, 1718 W. 79th St. (79th & Hermitage) in Chicago.
