Storyboard Text

  • From the 1920's through the 1950's Chicago's Southside was the center for African-American culture and business.
  • Bronzeville was well known for its night clubs and dance halls during the 1950's.
  • Bronzevilles businesses and community institutions Provident Hospital, the Wabash YMCA, and the George Cleveland Hall Library, were alternatives to racially restricted establishments downtown.
  • Businesses shut their doors and African Americans moved further south due to the elimination of restricted housing covenants. This resulted in nearly one-third of Bronzeville's housing stock becoming vacant or abandoned. But by the mid 1990's, signs of revitalization and interest emerged.
  • Bronzeville's 20th century resurgence, which rivaled the Harlem Renaissance, is responsible for tremendous cultural and social advances.
  • 47th Street was and remains the hub of the Bronzeville neighborhood and in recent years has started to regain some of the former glory of years gone by. Gone though for good is the Regal Theater (demolished in 1973) where many great performers took the stage.
