Corporate Scofflaws: Hiding Profits from Slavery.
Title 2, Chapter 92, Section 585 of the Chicago Municipal Code, Slavery Era Business / Corporate Insurance Disclosure, requires any contractor doing business with the City of Chicago to disclose any profits derived from slavery. Some of Chicago's largest companies profited from the European slave trade. Today, they are still covering their tracks.

Images of Chicago companies that have profited from slavery, but that have not disclosed the extent and documentation corroborating their failure to disclose.
