Interesting piece on the DuSable Monument Controversy.

One of things that has always struck me about the controversy over the statue, is how much the question of his race affects the debate over his physical appearance. How straight his nose should be, the texture of his hair. The larger question in all this is should this controversy further delay construction of the statue? For a lot of Chicagoans it means something to have a DuSable that looks African American.
