CHICAGO (AP) — University of Illinois at Chicago officials have wrapped up a two-year oral history project chronicling the leadership of former Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley.
The project includes 45 videotaped interviews with political advisors, chiefs of staff, family and former presidents Barack Obama and George W.Bush.
The interviews took place from 2017 and 2019 after the university was chosen to house Daley’s papers and artifacts from his 22 years in office.
In a news release, university officials said a website with the information will be ready in the fall as the library isn’t open to researchers during the coronavirus pandemic.
The interviews and documents will be part of a fall class called "The Daley’s Chicago: From Mid-Century to Global City.”
“These oral histories will enable students to analyze first-hand accounts of Chicago’s political history,” said lecturer David Greenstein, who'll each the class.
Daley left office in 2011 after deciding not to seek re-election. His father, Richard J. Daley, was Chicago mayor for 21 years. His papers were also donated to UIC.

In Project Power Dominique Fishback plays Robin, a dealer and aspiring rapper that has to team up with a local cop (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) and an ex-soldier (Jamie Foxx) to take down the group responsible for a pill that gives its users unpredictable superpowers for five minutes. In real-life, Fishback is an actress and accomplished playwright who debuted her play Subverted Off-Off-Broadway in 2014. Around the same time she had a number of one-off appearances in shows like The Affair and Blue Bloods but she wouldn't be cast in her first recurring role until 2015's Show Me a Hero, as single mother Billie Rowan.
Since then, she's stolen the show as Darlene on The Deuce and by the looks of Project Power's trailer . . . seems to be on track to do it again. While you may have to wait until Aug. 14 to see her in action as Robin in Project Power, you can currently check her out in some of the roles below - although there's still no release date for Judas and the Black Messiah.
