    There is a spirit of community struggle in Uptown that has kept its unique character alive even in the face of financial pressure and police repression. I was gentrified out in 1976 when our building on Clarendon was bought by developers. Before we left, I had the great pleasure of working the precinct for the insurgent aldermanic candidacy of Cha Cha Jimenez, the former Young Lords leader.
