The Raby Foundation was formed to honor the legacy of Civil Rights Leader Albert Anderson Raby through community service, activism, and youth leadership development in Chicago. Al Raby was an African American civil rights activist, co-chair of the Chicago Freedom Movement in the 1960s and campaign manager for Harold Washington, who became Chicago’s first black mayor in 1983.
