Sam Cooke Gets Honorary Street Designation

On 2 p.m. Saturday, that gets corrected. 36th Street and Cottage Grove Avenue becomes "Honorary Sam Cooke Way." That's the area of Bronzeville that served as Cooke's formative years and where he first started honing his musical talents with the Soul Stirrers and Highway QCs. We may have to keep the neighbors awake blasting "Night Beat" in celebration.
