 This photo originally ran in the Sun-Times on May 15, 1966. Caption read: Marching in front of apartment building at 4107 N. Broadway are pickets from a group called the Join Community Union, an Uptown organization. They claim the building is in dangerous condition for the more than 30 tenants. A spokesman for the group cited faulty wiring and loose plaster. (Photo by Pete Peters)
