I had the privilege of interviewing Timuel Black several times for @cbschicago. With Tim, you had to look at one more old newspaper clipping or hear one last story about an iconic figure from his past. He made it hard to meet your deadline but It was always time well spent. @dorothyTV2's photo on Timuel Black
