During the mid-1970s, the Young Lords occupied a storefront on Grace. The Young Lords started out as a Puerto Rican street gang. As urban renewal swept north in Chicago, many Puerto Rican families were evicted and claimed police abuse. The Young Lords were reorganized into a human rights group by Jose Cha Cha Jimanez in 1968. The Young Lords Organization drew front page headlines in new left tabloids and national and local media, due to their ability to organize and to bring thousands of people to neighborhood actions. The FBI infiltrated the group and jailed many of its leaders including Jimanez who spent a year in jail. Although many people counted the Young Lords down and out by 1972, the group managed to survive for decades more. A reader pointed out that Grace is in Lake View. However, they did much of their work in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood.
