Two one-week Landmarks workshops for fifty community college faculty members on the company town of Pullman, Illinois, the Pullman Car porters, and the culture of labor and race from 1880 to 1930.

The Newberry Library proposes to host two Landmarks of American History Workshops for Community College Faculty in Summer 2011 on "Pullman: Labor, Race, and the Urban Landscape in a Company Town." The two workshops will serve a total of fifty (50) community college faculty. These workshops will cast Pullman in a broad narrative of American history, using the neighborhood's history to explore the dramatic tensions of urban life in Chicago and the United States between 1880 and 1930. Teachers will benefit from site visits to Pullman and other Chicago neighborhoods and will have access to the Pullman Company Archives, held at the Newberry. Leading scholars on this history of Chicago, and on race, labor, and urban planning, will teach this workshop. Community college faculty who participate will be provided with digitized copies of the rich primary sources related to Pullman at the Newberry Library. The workshop content will be available through a Web site, administered by Newberry staff.
