Lightfoot says Chicago mayoral victory means ‘a city reborn’
CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago Mayor‐elect Lori Lightfoot’s resounding victory was a clear call for change at City Hall and
a historic repudiation of the old‐style, insider politics that have long defined the nation’s third‐largest city.

Lightfoot, a former federal prosecutor who’d never been elected to public office, defeated Cook County Board President and longtime City Council member Toni Preckwinkle on Tuesday with backing from voters across the
city. Late results showed Lightfoot, 56, winning every one of the city’s 50 wards.

Lightfoot also made history, becoming the first black woman and the first openly gay person to be elected
Chicago mayor. Chicago will become the largest U.S. city to have a black woman serve as mayor when Lightfoot is sworn on May 20. She will join seven other black women currently serving as mayors in major U.S. cities, including Atlanta and New Orleans, and will be the second woman to lead Chicago.

Review: How sweet the sound is in Aretha doc ‘Amazing Grace
After many dangers, toils and snares, the long‐lost Aretha Franklin concert film “Amazing Grace” has finally seen the light, and good Lord is it good. Filmed over two sessions in January 1972 at the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in the Watts section of Los Angeles, it captures Franklin at the absolute apex of her power. The colossal accompanying double LP, which didn’t suffer the same fate as the footage, is already justly revered and remains the best‐selling gospel record of all time. But to see it is to believe.

This is gospel ecstasy. “Amazing Grace,” a Neon release, is rated G by the Motion Picture Association of America. Running time: 87 minutes. Three and a half stars out of four.

Nipsey Hussle’s suspected killer caught; charges, court loom
By ANDREW DALTON LOS ANGELES (AP) — After a nearly 48‐hour manhunt, police arrested the suspect they say gunned down Nipsey Hussle in front of the popular rapper’s South Los Angeles clothing store.

Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies detained Eric Holder, 29, on Tuesday afternoon in the city of Bellflower, two days after the shooting and 20 miles away from the crime scene. LAPD detectives quickly arrived to verify that he was the suspect they’d sought. The focus now shifts from the streets to the courtroom. Holder is likely to be charged with killing Hussle and to make his first appearance in front of a judge in the next two days.

Authorities announced Holder as a suspect Monday night, publicizing his face and name and publicly urging him
to turn himself in. Police said a tip from a citizen led them to Holder. Hussle and Holder knew each other, and the two had some kind of personal dispute in the hours before the rapper was killed, police Chief Michel Moore said at a news conference earlier Tuesday.

The two men had several interactions on Sunday, and Holder returned to the store with a handgun and opened
fire on Hussle and two other men, who survived the shooting, police said. The chief did not reveal how the two men were acquainted or offer any details about their dispute, but he emphasized it was a personal matter between Hussle and Holder.

Hussle acknowledged that he was involved with a gang when he was younger, and police said Holder is a gang
member, but the chief said gang rivalries played no role in the shooting.
