October 20, 2021 - Approximately 645 new images from the Chicago Sun-Times photography collection have been published to CHM Images. Topics include Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and civil rights activity in 1950s and 1960s Chicago, early Second City performances, scenes from South Side neighborhoods, the funeral and burial of Emmett Till, and more.
Historical material often contains violent acts, offensive language or negative stereotypes reflecting the culture and language of a particular period or place. These items are presented as part of the historical record. The Chicago History Museum has an institution-wide initiative to critically consider the language used to describe people and materials, and we invite you to read more about our related projects.
