About Me

Dear Fellow Westsiders,

My name is Craig Jackson I am 53 years old, a graduate of Grant,McKinley And Crane H.S. Public

schools as well as Livingstone College Salisbury,N.C. B.A. Historyand graduate work at Roosevelt University Chicago. My goal is to show the world the westside of Chicago in it's best light;  it's highs and lows and have fun while doing it

What I'm doing actually is picking up where the Old Westside Historical Society (1996-1997) left off under the the Direction of Dr. Christopher Reed as secretary I recorded many a meeting on the various people and things that make up the west side of Chicago also in Conjunction with the Chicago Historical Society.

So sit back, relax and enjoy the posts soon to come. And remember sometimes real is raw.

    I've been a Chicagoan for 53 years. I graduated from Crane H.S. (where George Halas went) and have worked here almost all my life. Right now, however, I'm faced with homelessness. I'm here to share my story.
