Bernie Mac Street: A Space Of Community Inspiration

Bernie Mac Street Naming Ceremony 2012

Bernie Mac now has his own street, and we couldn't be happier!

The City of Chicago honored the late Kings of Comedy legend Tuesday by naming a one-block section of West 69th street Bernie Mac Street. The area in Englewood is near where Bernie grew up and attended school.

Mac’s widow, Rhonda McCullough, his daughter Je’Niece, and Jesse Jackson were among the 200 or so to attend the dedication ceremony.

Cheerleaders from his elementary school performed a routine, and Chicago comedians Reggie Reg and Tony Sculfield shared their memories of Mac and his work.

His daughter very poignantly stated:

"I hope this street naming is a beacon of light in this community…It should remind people that they can do whatever they want to do in life."

Well said. He was a warm soul and will always be missed!
