Stony Island Ave. proposed to honor Bishop Brazier
A major South Side street may be getting a new name.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel has proposed changing Stony Island Ave. to Reverend Bishop Brazier Ave.
Brazier was head of a large church, a civic leader and he marched with Doctor Martin Luther King Jr. in Chicago’s civil rights movement in the 1960s.
He died in 2010.
Stony Island runs from 56th St. to 130th St..
