Blacks Rights to Vote in Chicago
African-Americans legally had the right to vote in the 1960's, but they were restricted in the actual opportunity to vote.
Therefore, African Americans formed many organizations to start the civil rights movements. The Coordinating council of community
organization found by the urban league, along with any other groups, started a lot of protesting to demand racial justice.
By the late 60's the CCCO was disintegrating. Chicago's freedom movement was over. By 1970, Black Chicagoans gained several
legal rights, including the right to vote without interference and segregation came to an end.
