The Garden Walk of Protest

As a member of the Renewal Caucus and pastor of the Armitage Avenue United Methodist Church, Rev. Bruce W. Johnson, Jr. maintained a ministry of inclusiveness in the Lincoln Park area of Chicago in 1969.

Rev. Johnson embraced the poor and the efforts of the Young Lords Organization who sought a voice in their own community during the urban renewal efforts of the Lincoln Park Conservation Association and affiliated neighborhood associations.

Rev. Johnson and his wife Eugenia were murdered in their home September 30, 1969.  Their murders have never been solved and likely never investigated.

In memory of Rev Bruce W. Johnson and Eugenia Johnson
