Barack Obama in Chicago

Barack Obama began his time in Chicago as a community organizer on the South Side of Chicago, and later as a Lecturer and Senior Lecturer in Constitutional Law at the University of Chicago Law School near Washington Park. It was there that Obama also worked as a Civil Rights Attorney, and directed his much-heralded Project Vote registration drive working from small establishments like McDonald's on E. 115th St.

Obama's rise in Chicago politics took shape in 1996, when he was elected to the Illinois Senate as the representative from the 13th District, which includes South Side neighborhoods on the Chicago map like Hyde Park and the South Shore. After losing a Democratic primary run for senate in 2000, Obama earned a resounding victory for an open spot in the U.S. senate in 2004, winning 70% of the popular vote on the Chicago county map.
