You may have seen Jacoby Dickens in the above video from FOX 32 that originally aired back in February 2010 and had been posted here at that time. He spoke with anchor Robin Robinson about the history of Seaway Bank in his capacity as chairman. The video above had been downloaded to YouTube by me from Seaway's website.
Dickens was a significant figure on this side of town who had largely made his money in a number of ventures from real estate to ultimately bowling alleys in addition to being a majority owner at Seaway. He is the namesake of the Jacoby Dickens Center on the campus of Chicago State University. In 2006 I took this snapshot at Chicago State of a piece of street art with Dickens' image painted on it.
Condolences to Mr. Dickens' family!
