CHICAGO (CBS) — Ricky Byrdsong was killed in a hate crime almost 20 years ago. On Saturday, hundreds ran in memory of the former Northwestern basketball coach at Evanston’s annual Race Against Hate.
The race is more than a 5k or 10k. Participants also address racism while raising money for racial justice and violence prevention.
Byrdsong was killed by a white supremacist in 1999 as he walked through his Skokie neighborhood with his two young children.
