In Brief

Saul Alinsky, the man who inspired President Obama

President Obama's initiative to become a community organizer was inspired by Saul Alinsky's flamboyant career as an all-purpose activist who not only organized the working-class in one of Chicago's most blighted neighborhoods, but later mapped out strategies for the civil rights and antiwar movements of the 1960s. Saul Alinsky would have celebrated his 100th birthday ten days after President Obama's inauguration.
