Dare not say that man forgets sooner than woman, that his love has an earlier death. I have loved none but you. Unjust I may have been, weak and resentful I have been, but never inconstant. Persuasion (2007)
The All-African American Jackie Robinson West All-Stars, which will represent Chicago’s South Side in the Little League World Series for the first time in 31 years, will play their first game this afternoon.
The team, comprised of 11 and 12 year olds from the South Side neighborhoods of Englewood, Auburn- Gresham, Chatham, Morgan Park and Washington Heights, advanced to the World Series, which is held in Williamsport, Pa., by winning the Great Lakes Region Championship. Some of the neighborhoods, especially Englewood, rarely receive positive mention in the Chicago media.
