As part of their research for an upcoming film about the 1963 Chicago Public School boycott, Kartemquin Films has launched a new website to gather information about the people involved in the protests. If you were in the protests, or know people who were involved, have a look at Kartemquin's collection of photos to see if you can put names to the faces.
