There is nothing better than having a printed book in you hand. In our transition from our quarterly printed journal to the on-line journal, we knew that many people would still want a journal they can pick up, flip through, bookmark, share and display in your living room.
Every year, Shorefront makes available an annual journal, capturing the years online posts. The cover of the 2013 Shorefront Journal Annual features a young Lorraine H. Morton, Evanston’s first African American and first Democratic mayor. Morton, who served 17 years as mayor, she was also an alderman, middle school principal and elementary school teacher. Her article is in this issue along with 30 other articles.
You can pick up an issue at the Shorefront Legacy Center or order online direct from Lulu.com and have it delivered to your home, business, library or archive. At the same time, you will be supporting the efforts of Shorefront in collecting, preserving and educating people about Black history on Chicago’s suburban North Shore.
