“Fulfilling the Dream: The Chicago Freedom Movement, 40th Anniversary, 1966-2006” is a collaborative effort commemorating the history of the Chicago Freedom Movement. Coordinated by the Center for Urban Research and Learning at Loyola University Chicago, this project will focus on the history of the Movement as well as its impact on current life in Chicago. Co-sponsoring organizations include the Chicago Historical Museum, Community Renewal Society, DuSable Museum, Chicago Urban League, Newberry Library, and the Jewish Community Council on Urban Affairs. The keynote event, a citywide and national conference, is scheduled for July 23-25. For more information, contact Prof. Kale Williams at or visit
