The Chicago Freedom Movement continued its organizing efforts throughout the city. The Chicago chapter of Operation Breadbasket staged its first selective buying campaign and after a week of boycotting Country’s Delight Dairy announced that it would hire over forty African-American workers. Disaffected parents also forced the removal of an unpopular principal through a boycott at the Jenner School.
