A New Deal for Bronzeville: Housing, Employment, and Civil Rights in Chicago, 1935-1955 -
Manufacturer: Lionel Kimble, Jr.
A New Deal for Bronzeville: Housing, Employment, and Civil Rights in Chicago, 1935-1955

During the Great Migration of the 1920s and 1930s, southern African Americans flocked to the South Side Chicago community of Bronzeville, the cultural, political, social, and economic hub of African American life in the city, if not the Midwest. The area soon became the epicenter of community activism as working-class African Americans struggled for equality in housing and employment. In this study, Lionel Kimble Jr. demonstrates how these struggles led to much of the civil rights activism that occurred from 1935 to 1955 in Chicago and shows how this working-class activism and culture helped to ground the early civil rights movement.
