Punch 9 for Harold Washington

In this epic story of American politics, race, and triumph against all odds, director Joe Winston chronicles the captivating rise, surprising reign, and enduring legacy of Chicago's first African American Mayor, Harold Washington. Steeped in archival footage capturing a 1980s Chicago rife with corruption and discrimination, Punch 9 features candid interviews with Jessie Jackson, Valerie Jarrett, David Axelrod, and others on the frontlines and in the backrooms of power as it follows the charismatic politician's shrewd maneuverings, stinging betrayals, and unlikely victories. Inspiring and compelling, Washington's journey continues to resonate for a city and nation confronting the same enduring social issues.
