rich past and vibrant culture. As the CEO and chief storyteller at Chicago Mahogany Tours, he’s turned his love of everything Chicago into an Emmy Award-winning celebration of his mission to make sure history doesn’t repeat itself. He shares with Jeanne how his devotion to Chicago history started: why he compares his child-raising philosophy to bowling; how he uses the power of history to cross bridges; how history hurts and his goal to change it; and why he feels he owes Chicago more than he could ever give back.

Shermann "Dilla" Thomas is an urban historian and CEO/Chief Storyteller at Chicago Mahogany Tours as well as a contributor to WBEZ-Radio. He uses his passion and insider knowledge of Chicago's history, architecture, and culture to bring the city to life with his captivating storytelling. Dilla is an Emmy Award-winning, self-taught historian who was named the City of Chicago's Tourism Ambassador of the Year by Choose Chicago; Public Narrative named Dilla the 2022 Studs Terkel Uplifting Voice recipient and The Chicago Public Library awarded Dilla the 21st Century Award for his recent achievements in promoting Chicago to the world. Dilla has been independently studying the history of Chicago for over 20 years, and his candid and truthful reflection of that history can be felt in his videos and presentations. He embodies the essence of the city and reverberates his message everywhere that "Everything Dope About America Comes From Chicago".
