Chicago Citizen

The Citizen was founded by the late Illinois Congressman Augustus Alexander " Gus" Savage in 1965, during the height of the Civil Rights era and yet on the helm of the passing of the Voter Rights Act. Through three newspapers including the Chatham Citizen, Southend Citizen and Weekend Citizen, the Citizen Newspaper chain quickly became the voice for the Black community, telling the stories of many from the Westside to the South side and throughout neighborhoods in Chicago.
