The Chicago Race Riots Of 1919

"Carl Sandburg likened the 1919 riot in Chicago to 'the jungle.' It was a swarming mass of violence and outrage that was sparked by one teenager unknowingly crossing an unmarked line that divided white Chicago from black Chicago on July 27, 1919, nearly 100 years ago."


With a prescient forward by Walter Lippmann on white privilege.


"The Most Destructive Event In The City's History."
