City: Chicago

Initially built in 1899 as a Jewish synagogue, this building housed the Chicago Defender from 1920-1960. The Chicago Defender published works by Langston Hughes and Gwendolyn Brooks, and is largely credited for starting the Great Migration in its exhortations to southern blacks to move to the North for greater economic opportunities and freedom.
