From its founding in 1970 in business executive Frank C. Carr’s home city of Chicago, INROADS has grown into a nationally recognized 501 (c)(3) nonprofit, impacting the lives of over 154,000 youth.

This occasion celebrates the manifestation of the Frank C. Carr dream. Fifty years ago Mr. Carr, a prominent publishing executive based in Chicago, traveled to Washington, DC as an attendee of the March on Washington in August 1963. After hearing Martin Luther King’s speech about the dream he had for America, Frank Carr returned to Chicago with a mission in mind. Carr believed that Martin Luther King’s dream could become a reality and began plotting a course that would change the face of corporate leadership. In 1970, Carr founded INROADS and his legacy began. INROADS believes the changes in our culture and history we see today reflect Frank Carr’s vision of diversity.
