Anna langford and attorneys'

Anna langford (1917 – September 17, 2008) was an American politician and lawyer who served on the Chicago City Council in Chicago, Illinois. langford became the first African American woman elected to the Chicago City Council in 1971. She ultimately served three nonconsecutive terms on the council.

Anna langford was born in Springfield, Ohio to an African American father and a white mother. Both of her parents died when she was young. However, it was the circumstances of her mother's death which would having a lasting impact on Langford's life and her involvement with the civil rights movement. Her mother, who was white, was taken to an Ohioan hospital suffering from appendicitis. However, when her children, including Anna, who were biracial, came to visit their sick mother, the hospital immediately ordered her transferred to another hospital for African Americans. Langford's mother suffered a burst appendix while en route to the second hospital and did not survive. Her mother's death, which was caused by racism and discrimination, would shape the rest of Langford's life.

Langford moved to Chicago after the death of her parents. She graduated from Hyde Park High School and Roosevelt University. She enrolled at John Marshall Law School and became a lawyer in 1956.

She became intimately involved in the Civil Rights Movement, both within the Chicago Metropolitan Area and nationwide. langford met with Martin Luther King Jr. in the living room of her own home in 1966 to plan a march on Cicero, Illinois, to promote racial integration within the suburb.

Langford ran for a seat on the Chicago City Council in 1971 after losing in her first attempt four years earlier. She was the Chicago's first woman to be elected alderman on February 23, 1971. She was elected to represent the 16th Ward, which encompassed portions of the Back of the Yards, Gage Park and Englewood.

Langford lost her re-election bid for city council in 1975. She lost another election attempt in 1979, before finally winning election a second time to the Chicago City Council in 1983. She was re-elected in 1987 and retired from her seat four years later. In the Chicago City Council reorganization of 1988, anna langford became Mayor Pro-Tempore of the Council, a post she held from 1988-1991.

In the early 1980s, langford challenged United States Congressman Harold Washington, to run for Mayor of Chicago. She reportedly told Washington that she would run for mayor if her didn't, even going so far as to have "Langford for Mayor" cards printed to pressure Washington into entering the race. Her persuasion worked. Washington successfully ran for Mayor and was elected 1983. Washington's death in 1987 of a heart attack, brought langford into the public spotlight as a mediator between two rival African American aldermen, Eugene Sawyer and Timothy C. Evans, who sought to succeed him. langford ultimately backed Eugene Sawyer who was selected by the Chicago City Council to fill the Mayoral vacancy.

Langford was a supporter of Barack Obama's candidacy for President of the United States during her later life.

Ann langford died of lung cancer on September 17, 2008, at her home in the Englewood neighborhood of Chicago at the age of 90. langford was survived by her son, Larry Langford, three grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
