The Chicago Freedom Movement Photography Exhibit is a small but revealing snapshot
of Dr. Martin Luther King's visit and marches in Chicago, and of both the ugliness and beauty
of the response to open housing by the people of Chicago.
In remembrance and celebration of the Chicago Freedom Movement's fight for fair housing,
Bernard J. Kleina assembled his rare and historic color photographs that depict that struggle.
The photography exhibit includes contemporary photographs reminding us that we still have
a long way to go before we achieve what Dr. King fought for and what we are fighting
for now - open and fair housing and an end to racial and ethnic segregation.
Review the various sections of this website for an opportunity
to bring the Chicago Freedom Movement Exhibit to
your community, school, library or workplace.
If you feel that the images on your office walls could better reflect
what you are about, consider purchasing some of
Bernard Kleina's photography.
