Nearly a century ago, an African American teenager crossed an invisible line of segregation at a Chicago beach and paid with his life. The incident set off days of violence, resulting in dozens of deaths and hundreds of injuries. This contemporary account was written by Pulitzer Prize–winning author Carl Sandburg, who reported on the riots for the Chicago Daily News.
