This protest against slumlords occurred outside Northeast City College at 4522 North Racine on 2/28/1976. It was organized by the South Andersonville Improvement Association and covered by WGN-TV. At the rally, numerous residents passed out literature alleging horrific living conditions in the area’s tenements. Problems included leaky plumbing, holes in walls, rats, not enough heat, no hot water, bad odors, burned out mattresses and garbage littering property, and more. Protesters also alleged that they were charged exorbitant rents to live in these squalid conditions. The objective of the rally was to get the City to enforce building code violations.
