Born in 1929, civil rights activist Alice Tregay was best known for fighting segregation in Chicago schools. She marched with Dr. Martin Luther King in the 1960s to improve educational opportunities for blacks. She directed local and national voter registration campaigns under Operation Breadbasket, which worked to improve job opportunities for African Americans. In the 1990s, she marched in Washington D.C. to demand that Congress and the White House create jobs. She received many prestigious awards for her outstanding work in civil rights and community service, most notably one presented in March of 2004 by young Illinois State Senator Barack Obama, who would become the 44th President of the United States and the first African American to hold that office.
