About this title

Synopsis:

Religious values. Civil rights. The labor movement. Women's rights. Memories, songs and stories handed down. Those are the deep roots of community organizing and nowhere have they grown and flourished better than in Illinois. This book tells some stories that may have been forgotten about Saul Alinsky and the organizing model that he invented in Back of the Yards, Chicago, in 1939. What it meant to Chicago and Illinois and the nation in the 1960s and 70s. How it failed, where it prevailed. And how a new generation of activists relates Alinsky-style organizing to politics and civil rights. From Pembroke to Herrin, from Wood lawn to San Antonio, from the Packinghouse Workers to the Farm Workers, the Alinsky tradition has helped shape the last 50 years of our history and is working on the next. Illinois Issues Sangamon State University Barack Obama is a contributor and wrote the chapter: Why Organize? Problems and Promise in the Inner City
