- Mayor Rahm Emanuel reminisced Monday about the 1978 Marquette Park protest he joined as a teenager to counter a city-sanctioned rally by a group of Nazis led by Frank Collin.
At the time, Emanuel was a skinny, tanned 18-year-old with dark, curly hair and no shirt. He was determined to let Collin know that, even though the Nazis would not be allowed to march in Skokie, the hatred Collin espoused was not welcome in Marquette Park, either.
The picture that accompanied the Reader article will haunt us for years:
Might as well share the nightmares.
