Nat King Cole

Class of 1935

I am reading a biography of Nat King Cole and it states that he went to Wendell Philips High and started a group there. It'd be pretty cool to nominate him posthumously.

PS I'd also nominate the others listed below--Now located at 244 E. Pershing Road in the Bronzeville neighborhood of Chicago, the school has produced a number of notable African-American alumni, including Nat "King" Cole, singing legend and charter member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame the late Sam Cooke, and George E. Johnson, Sr., founder of Johnson Products (a cosmetics manufacturer and the first African-American owned firm to be listed on the American Stock Exchange).
