This May 10, 2012 photo shows Timuel Black, 93, a veteran civil rights activist and history professor on Chicago's South Side, during an interview in Chicago. Black says the upcoming NATO summit the city hosts May 20-21, 2011, might be a boon for Chicago’s downtown and for businesses and residents who already are successful. But he doubts it will do anything for the most impoverished neighborhoods that have only become poorer and more violent as jobs disappeared and the gap between rich and poor widened.
