The spark for the Chicago Freedom Movement was created in the summer of 1965 when King and the SCLC were
invited to the city by the Coordinating Council of Community Organizations (CCCO). Here, King speaks to a crowd near the Robert
Taylor and Stateway Gardens public housing projects during that visit.
