The Chicago Defender Newspaper was founded by Robert Sengstacke Abbott on May 5, 1905. His plan was to use this newspaper to address African American issues. In 1921, Mr. Abbott started the Chicago Defender Jr., a section for children in the newspaper. It included an application to the Bud Billiken ® Club, which was named after the Billiken, the guardian angel of little children according to Chinese legend.
