Kylie Jenner Shares Adorable Photo of Cousins Stormi and Chicago Snuggled Up Together

The Kar-Jenner girls are looking pretty in pink!

On Tuesday night, Kylie Jenner shared an adorable snapshot on Instagram of her daughter, Stormi getting cozy with Kim Kardashian and Kayne West‘s youngest, Chicago.

The cousins, who are just 17 days apart, were decked out in matching long-sleeved pink PJ tops and matching pink bottoms.

Fittingly captioning the image “slumber party 🎀”, Kylie captured the precious moment as the girls lay on a fuzzy pink blanket. In the snap, Stormi, 7 months, is clinging to a pink and aqua ball and Chicago, 8 months, is clutching what appears to be a tube of diaper rash cream.

Since welcoming Stormi in February with rapper Travis Scott, Kylie, 21, has made sure that her daughter spends a lot of time with the baby’s many cousins, including Chicago.

“They hang out all the time,” Kylie revealed in a sit-down about motherhood for the Evening Standard.

“It’s crazy how fast they grow, because Chi is just, like, two weeks older, but you can tell she’s a little bit more advanced. And then, right when Stormi hits two weeks, she’s doing the same things Chi was doing, and they’re like… it’s just crazy to see them grow up together.”

Mellody Hobson Delivers Keynote at Morningstar Investment Conference in Chicago

Mellody Hobson’s trailblazing accomplishments over the past few months have given women all over the world a new level of confidence. She was recently elected to the board of directors of JPMorgan Chase and will advance to the role of vice chair at Starbucks at the end of the month.

It’s no surprise that Morningstar, a leading independent investment research firm headquartered in Chicago, selected Hobson to deliver the luncheon keynote at the 2018 Morningstar Investment Conference on Tuesday, June 12. The conference brings together thousands of the most innovative minds in the investment world and Hobson’s nationally recognized work on financial literacy and investor education makes her a highly sought-after speaker.

During Hobson’s presentation, she discussed the markets, Ariel Investment’s story, the value of diversity, and her recent board appointments.

“We haven’t done the exotic things that everyone else does,” says Hobson, president of Ariel Investments—one of the largest diversity-focused investment firms in the world with over $ 10 billion assets under management (No. 1 on the BE 100s Asset Managers list, Black Enterprise‘s list of the nation’s largest black-owned businesses). “Just because we are good at one thing, doesn’t mean we would be good at another.” Hobson emphasizes how Ariel is a focused firm with concentrated portfolios. She also shares how patient investing and value investing have been two themes that have driven the direction of Ariel.

Ariel is known to be strategic in their investment approach but the firm has also evolved as a model company when it comes to attracting and retaining the best and most diverse leaders in the industry. According to a Chicago Tribune report from September 2017, Ariel’s staff is composed of 51% women and 27% African-Americans. Unlike many other finance-focused firms, two-thirds of the leadership team is female.

“We think that diversity is a competitive advantage for Ariel. And it’s shocking to us that other people don’t see it,” says the TED Talk speaker who transformed the diversity conversation in 2014 with her speech titled, “Color Blind or Color Brave? “We actually joke that if we are likeminded in our point of view about a stock, it’s going to be a problem. We really want to challenge each other and make sure we are looking at every conceivable angle and idea. The only way you can do that is by having people come with different points of view. All that leads to a perspective that can shape an outcome.”

Not only is working with a diverse team of individuals important, it’s also crucial to surround yourself with the best leaders in the industry. Hobson’s recent board position gave her access to the greatest leaders in finance.

“I get to sit next to a dynamic, iconic leader like Jamie Dimon several times a year and learn from him,” Hobson says. “Warren Buffett talks about the fact that he was a better investor because he was on boards.  It has been a gift for our firm to sit in the rooms we get to sit in and see what we have seen.” Hobson is also a director of The Estée Lauder Cos. Inc., chair of The Economic Club of Chicago’s board of directors, and chairman of After School Matters.

In 2000, Hobson became president of Ariel Investments at the age of 31. She started her career as an intern at Ariel Investments in 1991 after graduating from Princeton University. She rose up the ranks at Ariel and gained hands-on experience that has helped her to accelerate her progress.

“I didn’t go to business school. Ariel was my business school. I learned in real time. Why would I go learn about case studies when I have real-life case studies that I’m dealing with… like leading a mutual fund company?”

Report: Black Youth Unemployment Rate Down In Chicago

A new report on youth unemployment in Illinois found that the alarmingly high rate of young black men and women in Chicago who are neither working nor in school has dropped.

Data collected from 2012 through 2016 under the Obama administration and published by the University of Chicago’s Great Cities Institute, found that there has been a decrease in out of work, and out of school rates for black 20- to 24-year-olds in Chicago in recent years, but that substantial racial and gender gaps still remain. And although the newly found statistics are encouraging, researchers found that nearly a third of black 20- to 24-year-olds and 37% of black 20 -to 24-year-old men are still out of work and not going to school.

Report Highlights:

  • Joblessness and out-of-school and out-of-work rates were comparatively worse in areas of south, west, and central Illinois compared to Cook County.
  • The highest jobless rates for 20- to 24-year-olds in Illinois were located outside of the Chicago Metro Area in south, west, and central Illinois.
  • Joblessness and out-of-school and out-of-work rates for the total population, black, white, and Hispanic or Latino 20- to 24-year-olds were higher in sections of southern, western, and central Illinois than in Cook County.
  • Five subsections of Illinois had an out-of-school and out-of-work rate for black 20- to 24-year-olds above 40% and one area had a rate of 63.6%

What Researchers Learned

  • Black 20-to 24-year-olds had large improvements in out-of-work figures: Black 20- to 24-year-olds in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois and the U.S. had large decreases in out-of-work rates.
  • There were improvements in out-of-school and out-of-work rates for black 20- to 24-year olds in Chicago and worsening figures for Latinos from 2014 to 2016.
  • Teen employment in mid-sized cities and rural areas declined substantially: employment to population ratios for 16- to 19-year-olds in Illinois case study counties with mid-sized cities have decreased substantially since 1980.
  • Economies of mid-sized cities and rural economies are not incorporating young people into the workforce:
  • The mix of jobs in rural economies has changed in similar ways to Chicago, resulting in fewer opportunities for young people as older populations are increasingly employed in industries that young people have historically been employed in, such as retail.
  • Middle-class occupations are leaving medium-sized cities and rural areas as income inequalities grow: proportions of individuals in poverty and in high-income groups in Illinois case study counties are growing as middle-income groups are shrinking.

To Jack Wuest, executive director of the Alternative Schools Network, the data demonstrate an urgent need for more government-subsidized jobs so young people can gain basic work skills and become contributing members of the labor force. “Getting people on their feet, doing some work, out of the house, gives them a sense of dignity and power that they can spend money on what they like as well as take care of their family,” he said.

‘Chicago Fire’ Boss Talks Finale Twist: Is That the End of Dawsey?

Warning: this story contains spoilers from Chicago Fire’s Thursday, May 10, episode!

When one couple’s great, the other’s cracking. That was the case on Chicago Fire’s season 6 finale. While Stella (Miranda Mae Rayo) and Severide (Taylor Kinney) finally got a happy ending – he deserved one – Dawsey was not so lucky. After learning that having a baby would be a huge risk, Dawson (Monica Raymund) told her husband Casey (Jesse Spencer) that she wanted to try anyway. He refused, suggesting adoption instead. She then refused because of their history with Louie. So, in an impulsive move, she made a huge change, telling Chief Hatcher that she’d like to join the relief efforts in Puerto Rico.

Starting with the positive, cocreator Derek Haas admitted to Us Weekly that Severide had been through enough and while having Renee (Sarah Shahi) was a nice twist, he wanted Kidd and Severide to be together at the end of the season. “When we look at our board for the season, we look at what’s going to be our shocker, our upswing and heartbreak. It was definitely Severide’s turn after the last few seasons of having really tough romance-enders and best friend! We’ve been building them all season,” he said. “I do think Severide has a nature-nurture problem that comes with the territory when he’s dealing with relationships. But Kidd is special… I really like them together.”

And while Stellaride got the upswing it looks like Dawsey got the heartbreak. But will Dawson really go to Puerto Rico and will Casey follow her?

“I would love to be able to go to Puerto Rice and shoot for a week. Get Casey there, have Dawson there, but I can’t make any promises. I have no idea,” Haas noted. “I can see that episode in my head but I don’t know if we’re going to be able to do it.”

However, the conversation of children isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. “This issue is as big as you can have as an obstacle in a relationship. Since the very first episode, Casey has talked about wanting to be a father. She gets emotionally raw about the way that that could happen. It’s not thought out. It’s impulsive. It’s not even rational or how you should be thinking about these things but that’s what life does,” he added.

Chicago Fire has been renewed for a seventh season at NBC.

Then, he allegedly attacked her. The ambulance commander put the computer down, grabbed Hannah with both hands, and forcibly kissed her with an open mouth, according to a federal lawsuit.

As Hannah said “no” and backed away, her boss kissed her and licked her face, according to the complaint. Hannah put her hands on his chest to push him off.

Chicago Fire actress DuShon Monique Brown died on Friday, March 23, at age 49.

The Chicago Tribune reports that Brown died after 12 p.m. local time at St. James Olympia Field Hospital, according to the Cook County, Illinois, medical examiner’s office.

An autopsy is scheduled for tomorrow and the Prison Break alum’s official cause of death has not yet been disclosed, per E! News. However, according to TMZ, Brown checked herself into the hospital earlier this week after experiencing chest pains but was released shortly after undergoing tests.

“The Chicago Fire family is devoted to lose one of its own,” executive producer Dick Wolf said in a statement to theTribune. “Our thoughts and prayers are with DuShon’s family and we all miss her.”

Brown portrayed light-hearted Connie on the NBC show, assistant to Chief Wallace Boden (Eamonn Walker). Fans of the drama series took to Twitter to express their condolences.

Brown previously worked at Chicago’s Kenwood Academy High School as a crisis counselor and drama instructor. She also had a Masters Degree in counseling and a background in social work.

The Unexpected actress leaves behind a daughter, Zoe Brown. Although Brown disclosed little information about her child, she told the Huffington Post in 2016 that her costars “are always asking me about my kid and how my day is going and they are all so very sweet and kind.”

Police Commander Shot Dead in Downtown Chicago In Broad Daylight

A senior Chicago police commander was shot dead on Tuesday in a brazen early afternoon shooting that has even shocked a city where gun crime has become the norm.

Commander Paul Bauer, 53, was shot multiple times by a man reported by the Chicago Tribune to be a four-time felon known to police who was wearing body armour at the time of the shooting around 2pm Tuesday.

Bauer, a married father survived by a 13-year-old daughter, is believed to be the most senior police officer to be shot and killed in Chicago since the 1980s, and the first officer of any rank to be killed in 7 years.

Watch Kidd Lie to Zach About Severide on ‘Chicago Fire’

The love triangle is heating up on Chicago Fire! During last week’s episode, Stella Kidd (Miranda Rae Mayo) blew off a date with her new fling, Zach, to attend a charity event with Severide (Taylor Kinney). But was it more than just a good deed?

“Aren’t you on shift? They just let you hazmat guys come and go as you please?” Kidd asks Zach in Us Weekly’s exclusive sneak peek when he surprises her with a visit at Firehouse 51. She then adds: “Hey, I’m sorry about canceling that date. I never get migraines like that.”

Why would she lie to him about a night out with Severide if it was just a night to support the city of Chicago? Or maybe it was more. However, she doesn’t shy away when Zach tries again, asking her to “catch an early movie and make fun of it over some beers.”

Even though she takes a look back at Severide, she still accepts.

“I think they’re going to build up more romantic tension as they build up their friendship. The friendship is clicking. The way that these two actors act together is always funny and inspirational for a writer to watch on set,” showrunner Derek Haas told CarterMatt earlier this month about Severide and Stella. “We love that they’re just friends, but there’s also this undercurrent of wanting it to be something more. I think they’ll be two ships passing in the night for a little while, but we’re going to build it up. Hopefully the audience is responding to it; we’ll keep going in that direction.”

New Online Portal Offers Loans Up to $500,000 to African American Entrepreneurs in Chicago

 

Obtaining financing to open or expand a business is among the biggest challenges for entrepreneurs of color.

But Chicago City Treasurer Kurt Summers, working with lenders, is aiming to help small business owners in the Windy City overcome that barrier.

The Launching of SimpleGrowth

 

The national advocacy group Small Business Majority, national online lender Fundera, and micro-lender Accion have developed SimpleGrowth, a new online lending marketplace. Calling SimpleGrowth a first-of-its-kind local lending portal, officials say the platform will allow African American entrepreneurs in Chicago to connect with area lenders via a website.

The portal is designed to provide small business owners access to affordable financing and business assistance without having to fill out multiple applications.

Organizers also want to provide Chicago entrepreneurs a one-stop-shop to get non-predatory business loans and resources they need to strengthen their businesses.

Individuals can seek loans ranging from $ 500 to $ 500,000 at various rates, depending on the business owner’s readiness and other factors.

The financing will come from Chicago lenders including Accion, Local Initiatives Support Corporation Small Business and the Women’s Business Development Center, all Community Development Financial Institutions that support small business entrepreneurship. Businesses can apply for the loans for free.

High Percentage of Black-Owned Business

 

This lending for black-owned business in Chicago would be crucial, observers say.

There are 230,000 small businesses in Chicago, but an unusually high percentage of those businesses are owned by African Americans. Cook County, Illinois—which includes Chicago—has the most African American-owned small businesses of any county in the country at 110,000, the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2012 analysis of small businesses reports.

Lindsay Mueller, midwest director for Small Business Majority, says since there are so many African American-owned small business in the Chicago area, and “we know minorities and women have the most trouble obtaining small business loans, Chicago seemed to have a need for a tool like SimpleGrowth.”

 

(Lindsay Mueller, Midwest Director for Small Business Majority, walks Chicago City Treasurer Kurt Summers through SimpleGrowth’s online application. Image: Small Business Majority and Russell Ingram, Ingram Photography.)

 

Another report, completed by the Woodstock Institute, a Chicago-based research and advocacy firm, examined disparities in small business lending. The report mainly targeted smaller value loans under $ 100,000. Those are loans most likely to support smaller, local businesses that offer employment and wealth-building opportunities for local residents.

In the Chicago region, businesses in low-income census tracts constituted an average of 6.6% of all businesses in the region between 2012 and 2014, but they only got 3.5% of CRA-reported bank loans under $ 100,000 and 3% of the total amount of those loans during that period. If those businesses had received the loans in proportion to their share of all businesses in the Chicago region, they would have taken in nearly 10,400 more loans totaling nearly $ 141.6 million more than they collected between 2012 and 2014.

CRA, or the Community Reinvestment Act, encourage financial institutions like banks to meet the credit needs of the communities where they operate, including low- and moderate-income neighborhoods.

Chicago First City to Provide the Service

 

Summers says Chicago will be the nation’s first city to provide the lending technology.

“Healthy businesses support thriving communities and improve the overall picture of economic development for residents,” he says. “This SimpleGrowth tool is another leap forward in my office’s mission of boosting the economy and creating a climate for job creation, especially in traditionally underrepresented neighborhoods.”

John Arensmeyer, Small Business Majority founder and CEO, says lack of access to capital for small businesses is a major problem and is throttling our economy. “Small business owners represent 99% of employer firms, but many who seek financing under $ 250,000 are routinely denied with little recourse to find financing or business support elsewhere,” he says. “This level of financing is usually needed during critical growth phases for businesses.”

(Margo Strotter, the owner of Ain’t She Sweet Café and host of SimpleGrowth’s launch event, speaks about her experiences getting a loan through Accion Chicago and how SimpleGrowth will help local business owners like her. Image: Small Business Majority and Russell Ingram, Ingram Photography.)

 

Business owners who don’t qualify for a loan through SimpleGrowth’s Chicago-based lenders can apply through Fundera’s national platform. Other options include business credit cards, medium-term loans, and lines of credit.

Plus, the  SimpleGrowth platform will connect Chicago small businesses that don’t now qualify for loans to small business assistance centers across the city that can help with business advising, planning, and other support services.

Exhibitionism is coming to Chicago!

THE MOST INFLUENTIAL ROCK ‘N’ ROLL BAND IN THE WORLD BRINGS MORE THAN 500 RARE ITEMS TO CHICAGO

IMMERSIVE, 3-D EXHIBIT DISPLAYING THE ROLLING STONES’ ICONIC IMPACT ON POPULAR CULTURE IN MUSIC, FASHION, ART AND FILM

#STONESISM

www.stonesexhibitionism.com

The Rolling Stones’ first ever major exhibition, Exhibitionism, delivered by DHL, will make its Chicago debut at Navy Pier on April 15, 2017 and will run a four-month engagement through July 30, 2017, proudly brought to the US by Jackson. The Chicago engagement follows the exhibit’s global premiere in London and its star-studded U.S. premiere in NYC, both of which garnered rave reviews and drew huge crowds of music, art and fashion lovers. Exhibitionism is the largest touring experience of its kind ever to be staged, and the first time in history the band has unlocked their vast private archive exploring the very beginning of their history to The Stones’ superstardom of today.

Tickets for Exhibitionism will go on sale to the general public on Feb. 24, 2017 at 10am. Tickets will be available at StonesExhibitionism.com. There will be an exclusive Early Bird Offer of a 25% discount on limited edition commemorative VIP tickets from Feb. 16-21 only. Group tickets for 10 or more are available by calling Broadway In Chicago Group Sales at (312) 977-1710, or visiting BICGroups.com.

“This world-class exhibit brings full-circle a journey that began more than 50 years ago when a burgeoning British band came to Chicago to record in the same studio as their idols Muddy Waters, Bo Diddley and Howlin’ Wolf,” Mayor Emanuel said. “Since then we have seen the Rolling Stones return for countless legendary concerts, and in the process become living legends, spreading Chicago’s cultural vibrancy throughout the world.”

ABOUT EXHIBITIONISM

Exhibitionism tells the story of the most influential rock ‘n’ roll band in history, allowing visitors to experience first- hand their incredible journey from early days living together in a tiny flat to headlining the biggest stages in the world. Exhibitionism continues the Stones’ proud tradition of groundbreaking innovation combined with the highest production values.

Originated and produced by Australian-based iEC Exhibitions! with the full participation of Mick, Keith, Charlie and Ronnie, and curated by New York native Ileen Gallagher, this highly immersive and interactive exhibition explores the Stones’ extraordinary career featuring over 500 rare and original items from their archive.

From their most cherished instruments, onstage and offstage clothes, valuable works of art and handwritten lyric books to personal diaries, recordings, unseen film and photos, a screening cinema and interactive recording studio that all culminate in an exciting and powerful backstage-to-onstage 3D concert experience.

“We’ve been thinking about this for quite a long time but we wanted it to be just right and on a large scale,” said Mick. “It’s not going to be like walking into a museum. It’s going to be an event, an experience. It’s about a sense of The Rolling Stones – it’s something we want people to go away talking about it.”

“While this is about The Rolling Stones, it’s not necessarily only just about us,” said Keith. “It’s also about all the paraphernalia and technology associated with a group like us, and it’s this, as well as the instruments that have passed through our hands over the years, that should make the exhibition unforgettable.”

Over the past 50 years, the Rolling Stones became, and have remained, one of the most culturally important acts in history. From the daring white dress worn by Mick Jagger in 1969, to the seminal Sticky Fingers (1971) album cover to their iconic tongue and lips logo, up to their chart-topping latest album Blue and Lonesome released in December 2016, the Rolling Stones have continued to break the boundaries of cultural norms throughout their incredible career.

The original works of key collaborators who helped to make the band not just musical but cultural icons are also on display, including Andy Warhol, John Pasche, who designed the band’s iconic tongue logo, fashion designers Ossie Clark and Alexander McQueen, artist Shepard Fairey, producer Don Was, and film director Martin Scorsese.

Exhibitionism gives visitors a look back at the high points of the band’s career through a new film, with a high-octane soundtrack. It then steps back into the early days, to an amazing recreation of the Edith Grove flat that Mick, Keith and Brian shared in 1962. The flat was located just off the King’s Road in London’s Chelsea neighborhood.

“Exhibitionism is a celebration and thematic exploration of the creative life of a band that has managed both to stay current and stay true to its artistic vision for more than half a century,” said curator, Ileen Gallagher.

“This was such a unique opportunity to collaborate with the band and get their insights into the project,” continues Gallagher. “The quotes on the wall and all of the text in the exhibition is in the voice of the band or people who work very closely with them. You’re actually having the band tell you what happened at the time.”

There is a recreation of a Stones’ recording studio complete with their original instruments, plus a “backstage” area to give fans a sense of what it truly feels like just before the band heads out on stage. A guitar gallery brings together examples of some of Keith, Ronnie and Mick’s prized instruments, including a rosewood Fender Telecaster and a Maton that Keith played on Let It Bleed, which famously disintegrated as he reached the final notes of ‘Gimme Shelter.’

Other unique items include the cassette player on which Keith famously sketched out the idea for ‘(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction’, just before falling asleep in a Florida motel room, Mick’s lyric book which features the hand written words for ‘Miss You’, ‘Hey Negrita’ and ‘Worried About You,’ Keith’s 1963 diary, and the toy drum kit that Charlie used in the recording of ‘Street Fighting Man.’

DHL is the Presenting and Official Logistics Partner of Exhibitionism and is using the power of its global network to transport Exhibitionism to Chicago and beyond. “As the world’s most international logistics company, DHL is thrilled to be bringing Exhibitionism to Chicago, a city that’s renowned for its rich music history,” said Mike Parra, CEO of DHL Express Americas. “The Stones were the consummate professionals as musicians – they made it all look so easy. DHL has a similar workstyle of ‘excellence, simply delivered’ – no matter how complex the logistics.”

Jackson National Life Insurance Company® (Jackson®), a leading provider of retirement products, will serve as the official U.S. Sponsor. “For Jackson, sponsoring the exhibit is a once-in-a-lifetime celebration of the creative and age-defying journey of true rock-and-roll legends,” said Barry Stowe, CEO of Jackson. “By embracing the living legacy of The Rolling Stones, Jackson can connect on a deep emotional level with a generation that is defined by these very ideals. The baby boomers helped to usher in one of the most powerful eras of change and disruption in music, culture and philosophy. As a company focused on helping baby boomers plan for the next phase of their lives, we are pleased to be able to bring to North America this world-class exhibit focused on an artistic and cultural phenomenon that helped define and shape a generation.”

Navy Pier, the top destination attraction in the Midwest, will be home to Exhibitionism for Chicagoans and tourists alike. “At Navy Pier, we take great pride in offering dynamic and eclectic experiences to our 9 million plus annual guests,” said Marilynn Gardner, President and CEO of Navy Pier, Inc. “The Rolling Stones Exhibitionism Tour aligns perfectly with our goal of bringing unique programming to the Pier that creates experiences our guests will value and cherish for a lifetime. We look forward to opening the doors to Chicago’s lakefront treasure and welcoming art and music fans from near and far to view this one-of-a-kind exhibit.”

Choose Chicago will work with Exhibitionism to immerse visitors into the largest touring exhibition of its kind ever to be staged at nearly 18,000 square feet. “Core to Chicago’s brand and history is our amazing tradition of music – from the birthplace of the Blues and Jazz to the continued evolution of all forms of music and entertainment today – on our stages, on our festival grounds and in our nightclubs,” said David Whitaker, President & CEO of Choose Chicago. “Having the privilege of hosting The Rolling Stones Exhibitionism gives us a tremendous platform to provide visitors with not only anew reason to visit, but also a compelling opportunity to experience it in the heart of our city at Navy Pier – one of the most successful attractions in the United States.” 

The Rolling Stones officially opened Exhibitionism, delivered by DHL, on April 5, 2016 at London’s Saatchi Gallery and played through September 4. Giving it a four-star review, The Daily Telegraph called it, “The most magnificent multi-sensory barrage of Stones ‘stuff’ you’re ever likely to encounter.” The Guardian exclaimed it as, “genuinely jaw-dropping” with the Daily Mail adding that it is “The most comprehensive and immersive insight into the band’s fascinating fifty-year history.” 

Exhibitionism is currently playing New York City’s Industria in the West Village through March 12, 2017. Rolling Stone says Exhibitionism is “An elaborate and immersive Stones exhibit;” Good Morning America raves its “Spectacular;” Billboard says “’Exhibitionism is an enthralling look at decades of rock history that even diehards can learn from!” and People.com says “The exhibit is the closest you’ll get to hanging out with the band at key moments in their history.”

Chance the Rapper is helping Chicago students in need.

The Grammy Award-winning lyricist and social activist has teamed up with STATE Bags for back-to-school season to donate 30,000 backpacks to children living in some of Chicago’s most underfunded neighborhoods.

“What too often gets lost in the negative narrative swirling around the city’s most underfunded and embattled communities is the undeniable love, hope and pride that is bursting from these very neighborhoods and the incredible, resilient kids living within them,” a press release announcing the initiative states. “This is the story STATE co-founders Scot and Jacq Tatelman have seen firsthand, and the one they are committed to sharing with the world.”

The backpacks will be distributed through Chance’s SocialWorks empowerment charity. He, along with Scot and Jacq Tatelman will hand out bags to thousands of Chicago children and their families at the Bud Billiken parade this Saturday.

Yet another reason why Chance the Rapper is someone to look up to.

Chicago Police Review Board Declares 2012 Cop Shooting Of 15-Year-Old “Unwarranted”

Dakota Bright, 15, was running from police officers in 2012 when they fatally shot him in the back of the head. Five years after his death, Chicago’s Independent Police Review Board (IPRA), which was established to serve as a check on the city’s law enforcement, found the cops weren’t justified in killing Bright.

The cop claimed he shot the teenager because he thought he was reaching for a gun. Although police found a weapon nearby it wasn’t on Bright. The IPRA determined that Bright’s death was “unwarranted” and “unprovoked.”

Their findings come as a slight surprise considering the board has only deemed six other shootings — of the hundreds its investigated — as unjustified in its 10 year existence.

While the IPRA was founded to hold cops accountable, civil rights lawyers are wary of the limited number of instances the organization have held police accountable. The Chicago Tribune notes that five of those instances in which the IPRA found police to be in the wrong occurred over the course of the last two years.

Coincidentally, 2015 was also the year a judge demanded Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel release the tapes of the Laquan McDonald shooting. The IPRA determined that the officer who shot Bright lacked credibility as his recollections of the shooting were inconsistent. They also suspected the other officers present at the scene had too much time to collectively fabricate a false recollection of events. The officers present at the scene were all friends with the cop in question.

Chicago police Superintendent Eddie Johnson is expected to review the IPRA’s findings. The cop will only face the possibility of termination if Johnson agrees with the IPRA’s findings.

The actress didn’t give specifics about what form her new venture will take— a product line? an interiors firm? — but it’s also not the first time she’s opened up about her love for design. In October, she worked with One Kings Lane to make over a cottage guest house on her L.A. property, and is frequently sharing her interior inspiration on Instagram.
