Chicago & The Rise of Barack Obama (1985-2008)
Bus Tour by Forgotten Chicago
Thursday, October 26, 2017
Forgotten Chicago and Pullman-area native Tom Shepherd are proud to present an exclusive tour of sites and people crucial to the rise of Barack Obama in Chicago in the years before his first election to the White House in 2008.
Join us for a unique and enlightening bus tour highlighting many Chicago sites that helped shape Obama and his historic rise to the presidency between 1985 and 2008. This exclusive tour is a rare opportunity to visit little-known sites related to Obama's years in Chicago and to hear from those who worked with Obama during his early career. This tour will drive past some of the sites critical to Obama's later Chicago career. The motor coach tour will last approximately 5 1/2 hours (including a couple blocks of walking in Hyde Park).
Registration Deadline: October 12, 2017. Trip is non-refundable.
Our tour includes a cafeteria lunch at Valois, one of the President's favorite restaurants.
