Responses to the Skokie Plan, 1966

Throughout 1966, Skokie moved forward with its plan to promote fair housing. The Skokie Human Relations Commission (SHRC) engaged directly with the general public and real estate agents to encourage changes in attitude towards people of color in Skokie. Some strategies utilized by Skokie leaders may appear odd in today's world, such as creating a list of every Black family in Skokie, but the overall goal of achieving integration and diversity in Skokie remained clear. Much of the reports captured by the Commission relate directly to home sale data over the year 1966.
