Chicago Annenberg Challenge Collection to ReOpen at University of Illinois Chicago Library

The University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) Library announced today that its archive of documents from the Chicago Annenberg Challenge will be available on August 26, 2008. On August 19,2008 the University of Illinois had refused to release records relating to Barack Obama’s service to the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, a nonprofit group linked to former 1960s radical activist William Ayers.
The University’s Chicago campus said the donor of the records that document the work of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge had not yet turned over ownership rights to the material.
