The Jewish Labor Committee was organized by Detroit Jewish workers and labor organizations in 1934 to fight totalitarianism abroad and discrimination at home. Among topics discussed are civil rights, NAACP, discrimination in housing and employment, bombings in the South, school prayer issue, and Soviet anti-semitism. Records are those of the Michigan Regional Office, focusing on Detroit civil rights issues, however there is material on JLC programs elsewhere in the U.S. Also included are Selma Goode files.
