Chicago Freedom Movement

Fulfilling the Dream


In 1965, the country’s most effective civil rights leaders joined forces in Chicago to attempt the first civil rights campaign in a large Northern city. Focusing on open housing, the movement enlisted thousands of people to march through Chicago’s streets and into its real estate offices. This site chronicles the peopleorganizations, and events that formed the movement, and brings together a vast collection of movement material.
