Here's a great website about the Contract Buyers League, a collective of African American Chicago homeowners originating in North Lawndale on Chicago's West Side, who, in the late 1960s protested the exploitative sale of homes to blacks through contract selling. It has a lot of great information and links, including a really high-resolution residential security map of Chicago, and a cool documentary we had never seen called Blacks and Jews that examines the relationships and conflicts between Black and Jewish activists. Check it out!
