{Chicago Thursday June 26, 2014} 
Rainbow PUSH will open its 2014 convention with a Town Hall meeting on education to 
announce its action plan to provide a high quality public education for every student. 
The town hall meeting is a response, in part, to today’s announcement by the Chicago Board of 
Education of the layoff of more than 1,100 teachers and school support staff. This decision 
follows the Board’s previous actions of more than 5,000 layoffs in 2013. Within the last 90 
days, the Chicago Public Schools announced its decision to turnaround three more schools, in 
addition to the 50 schools that were closed in 2013. 
“Laying off teachers, hiring more police, locking up our youth en masse is a tragic reactive circle 
of circumstance that must be broken,” said Rev. Jesse L. Jackson, Sr., founder and CEO of the 
Rainbow PUSH Coalition. “There must be some plan of reconstruction, which by necessity 
involves more schools, hiring more teachers, and graduating more students,” added Jackson. 
According to the Chicago Teacher's Union this latest round of layoffs is the fourth incident in the 
past five years. Of the 1,150 layoffs announced today, 550 are teachers and 600 are Educational 
Support Personnel (ESP). The layoffs stem from the low level of per-pupil funding which CPS 
Central Office set for schools, said CTU. 
The Illinois General Assembly's Chicago Educational Facilities Task Force has indicated that 
this decade of school closures and other actions has not produced any documented or sustained 
academic benefit for children. 
“We encourage every teacher, teacher assistants, librarians, educational support personnel, 
paraprofessionals and school-related personnel, technology coordinators and instructional aides 
to join us at the Town Hall Meeting at Rainbow PUSH National headquarters, 930 E. 50th Street, 
Friday, June 27, 2014 at 6:00 pm,” said Rev. Jackson.

On August 6, 1974, the DuSable Museum held its first Art Festival just one year after the museum moved to its present location in Washington Park. Eight artists participated that year! Key amongst them were Margaret Burroughs and Sophie Wessel, who came up with the idea to organize this event which now each year hosts nearly 200 artists and crafts people. Today, the festival is known as the DuSable Museum’s Arts and Crafts Festival and this year’s festival is a milestone as we celebrate 40 years.
The Festival is a showcase for local artists, an exhibition of fine art and unique and hand-crafted work which features artists working in traditional, ethnic and experimental fine arts and crafts that relate to African-American themes, identity, history and culture, and underscores our mission of preserving the history and culture of the African-American experience. We also celebrate Dr. Margaret Burroughs (1915-2010), Founder of the DuSable Museum of African American History.
