(35300) Jobs Now! Conference
Sponsored by the Citizens Committee for Equal Opportunity and the Virginia Park Citizens Committee, a jobs fair, called the “Jobs Now! Conference,” is held at Hutchins Junior High School, near the place where Detroit’s Civil Unrest will erupt exactly two months later. The jobs fair organizers described the neighborhood as being one of Detroit’s “areas of most critical unemployment.” May 23, 1967. Source: Wayne State University Office of Religious Affairs, Box 18.
