The College of Professional Studies is sad to announce the passing of our friend, and noted Chicago Poet, David Hernandez. For the past two years he was the invited guest and headline performer at the August Welcome Back Block Party. With his band, Street Sounds, he delighted and touched students, staff and faculty alike with his blend of poetry, music and humor.
Last year we were fortunate enough to record his performance in the Gist Hall Theater, which you can watch below. To learn more about what an extraordinary man David was, please read this blog post on WBEZ91.5-Chicago Public Media website.
