North Lawndale (also known simply as "Lawndale") located on the west side of Chicago, Illinois, is one of the well-defined community areas in city of Chicago. According to Charles Leeks, director of NHS, North Lawndale has the greatest concentration of graystones in the city. The City of Chicago has enacted The Historic Chicago Greystone Initiative. From about 1900 to 1950, Jews, overwhelmingly of Russian and Eastern European extraction, dominated the neighborhood, starting in North Lawndale and moving northward as they became more prosperous. In the 1950s, blacks moved in and "unscrupulous real-estate dealers" all but evacuated the white population, which dropped from 87,000 in 1950 to 11,000 in 1960.

According to the Steans Family Foundation, in the decades following the 1960s there were a series of economic and social disasters... Riots followed the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., in 1968, destroying many of the stores along Roosevelt Road and accelerating a decline that lead to a loss of 75% of the businesses in the community by 1970. Industries closed: International Harvester in 1969, Sears (partially in 1974 and completely by 1987), Zenith and Sunbeam in the 1970s, Western Electric in the 1980s. By 1970 African-Americans who could were also leaving North Lawndale, beginning a precipitous population decline that continues to this day.

Lawndale was the site of the founding of the Vice Lords, a street gang which in the late 1960s attempted to transform themselves into a positive force for their neighborhood, setting up community centers and undertaking peaceful political actions. However, this transformation proved short-lived.

Jonathan Kozol[1] devotes a chapter of Savage Inequalities: Children in America's Schools to North Lawndale, which he says a local resident called "an industrial slum without the industry." At the time, it had "one bank, one supermarket, 48 state lottery agents ... and 99 licensed bars." and that, according to the 1980 census, 58 percent of men and women 17 and older had no jobs.
