Rev. Dr. Addie L. Wyatt was one of the country's foremost champions for organized labor and civil rights. As a union leader, Rev. Wyatt fought for principles of worker rights such as equal pay for equal work and leadership roles for minorities and women, and she was the first female president of a local chapter of the United Packinghouse Workers of America. Wyatt worked with the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and endured violent opposition during marches with King in Chicago in the 1960s. She was a member of the Action Committee during the Chicago Freedom Movement and she and her husband were founding members of Operation Breadbasket, serving on its board.
