Welcome to the “The Grid,” the Chicago Sun-Times in-depth look at Chicago neighborhoods. Today’s stop: Bronzeville. For more than 100 years, Bronzeville has been the heart of Chicago’s African-American community. Located along Lake Michigan about 4 miles from downtown Chicago, this neighborhood began as home to many of the millions who fled the South during the Great Migration of the early 1900s. Through its sometimes difficult history, Bronzeville has remained home to a vibrant cultural scene often called the “Chicago Black Renaissance,” and to many history makers like Gwendolyn Brooks and influential businesses and media like the Chicago Defender.

Thirty-three years ago today, one of television’s great — nay, iconic — series came to an end. It was a show about a couple of good ol’ boys that meant no harm, yet were crossways with the law … practically since the day they were born. Beats all you ever saw, right? OK, I admit I probably have a soft spot for “The Dukes of Hazzard.” When the 2005 movie came out, I tried to warn my bosses here at the Statesman about the depths of my devotion — telling them about how 7-year-old Dave passed out from heat exhaustion one Friday afternoon in 1979, then woke later up in a darkened room slightly hysterical because he thought he had missed that evening’s episode.
