Chicago Racial Demographics 1910-2000

Interesting to watch the changes in Chicago. In 1900 the neighborhoods were over 90% white.  A large portion of the south and west sides changed to primarily African-American, leading to the observations that Chicago was the most racially segregated city in America.
