HSPRD has recently acquired some of the only known color images of Dr.  Martin Luther King, Jr.  The pictures were taken during The Chicago Freedom Movement in the summer of 1966, led by Dr. King, that protested unfair housing policies.   They are now displayed in the firm’s conference room and reception area.  The pictures were taken by Bernard Kleina, who served as the executive director of HOPE Fair Housing Center in Wheaton, Ill., for more than 40 years.  Mr. Kleina actively participated in Chicago Freedom Movement.
