Obama Library South Side CBA Coalition march near future OPC site

Hyde Park Herald

Over 100 south siders assembled across the street from Hyde Park Academy High School, 6220 S. Stony Island Ave., on a chilly November evening.

South siders both young and old expressed their desire for a community benefits agreement (CBA) for the Barack Obama Presidential Center (OPC) that is slated to open to the public in 2021.

Those that gathered on Tuesday, Nov. 7, are members of local organizations that are aligned with the Obama Library South Side Community Benefits Agreement (CBA) Coalition.

The 100-plus people marched from Hyde Park High School, which is a short distance away from the site for the OPC to 63rd Street and Cornell Drive, holding signs asking drivers to honk if to support a CBA.
