Summary
Police officer and community activist Renault A. Robinson was born on September 8, 1942, in Chicago, Illinois. He was known for successfully bringing a civil rights lawsuit against the Chicago Police Department for discrimination against African Americans and Latinos, increasing the number of minority Chicago police officers. Robinson earned a B.S. degree from Chicago's Roosevelt University. Robinson joined Chicago's police force in 1964. The brutality of the Chicago police in the wake of the riots following Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s 1968 assassination caused Robinson and other black officers to form the Afro-American Patrolman's League. He served the National Black Police Association as a national information officer. In 1983, he became chairman of the Chicago Housing Authority under the administration of Mayor Harold Washington. Robinson went to work as the vice president of ASI Personnel Service in 1989. In 2000, he founded the temporary staffing agency, Renault Robinson Staffing.
