In an effort to keep the legacy of Chicago's first black mayor alive, a group of supporters will honor the late Mayor Harold Washington with a wreath laying ceremony at the Oak Woods Cemetery, 1035 E. 67th St., where Washington is buried.

Carol Adams, president and CEO of the DuSable Museum of African American History, will be the keynote speaker, and Cook County Clerk David Orr will lay the official wreath on Washington's gravesite.

The free event is sponsored by The Harold Washington Tribute Committee.
