Black Chicagoans were at the center of a national movement in the 1940s and '50s, when African Americans across the country first started to see themselves as part of a single culture. In fact, Adam Green argues, this vibrant period in Windy City life engendered a unique cultural and commercial consciousness, fostering ideas of racial identity that remain influential today.
