The History Behind Hansberry V. Lee, 20 U.C. Davis L. Rev. 481 (1987), Allen R. Kamp Jan 1987

The History Behind Hansberry V. Lee, 20 U.C. Davis L. Rev. 481 (1987), Allen R. Kamp

Faculty Scholarship

This Article provides the factual background to Hansberry v. Lee, the famous class action case. During the early 1900's, Chicago's black population was kept effectively segregated, primarily through the use of racially restrictive covenants. However, in the 1930's, this system began to break down. The growth of the black population caused an increased demand for black housing, while the Depression reduced the market for white housing. It was at this time that Carl Hansberry bought a house that was covered by a restrictive covenant, generating a lawsuit to have the covenant enforced and the Hansberrys evicted.
