Donald Lassere started this week as the new head of the Chicago History Museum. It's a homecoming for the native South Sider, who most recently led the Muhammed Ali Center in Louisville. Lassere reflects on his youth in Chicago, including being run out of Marquette Park because he was Black, and what he's excited to return to in Chicago (hint: Harold's). Lassere also tells Jacoby he wants to make sure the 165-year-old museum tells the stories of all of Chicago’s neighborhoods.
