Chicago’s South Side, election day 1992 with Andrew Jones

Chicago’s mayoral and aldermanic elections were this Tuesday. Now, as Mayor Rahm Emanuel and his leading opponent, Jesus “Chuy” Garcia, prepare for a runoff election, we thought we’d share some footage from Andrew P Jones, shot on Chicago’s South Side during The 90’s Election Special coverage.Although a native Bostonian, Andrew was a devoted and inquisitive correspondent, with a particular passion for black politics in the US. He spent most of election day talking with voters, election judges, and campaign staff about Chicago politics and the legacy of Mayor Harold Washington.
You can check out Andrew Jones’ own selection of clips from his raw footage for The 90’s Election Special at Media Burn.
