Sam Cooke Way

The late, great soul legend Sam Cooke got his own street in Chicago earlier this month. Let's take a look.

1. "Nearly 80 years after he moved to Chicago as a child, legendary soul singer Sam Cooke was honored with the renaming of a street Saturday afternoon near his boyhood home in Bronzeville," the Sun-Times reported.

"The renamed street, a stretch along 36th Street, runs near the site of the deceased musician's family's original home at 3527 Cottage Grove. 'Sam Cooke Way' begins at Cottage Grove and runs east past another one of his boyhood homes at 724 E. 36th St.

"The celebration was led by the Chicago Blues Museum and Erik Greene, Cooke's great-nephew."
