men with confederate flags at the open housing march

A group of white men, probably counter-protesters, hold Confederate flags at an Open Housing March in the Bogan neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois, 1966. The Open Housing Movement included marches through both impoverished black neighborhoods and predominantly white neighborhoods in its quest to abolish Chicago's extreme racial segregation and slums.
