As the Depression deepened, African Americans wrestled with the experience of unemployment and economic deprivation, constructing new approaches to advance an agenda for fuller inclusion into the larger body politic. This chapter examines the rise of self-reliance within black Detroit, focusing on efforts to carry the battle for inclusion forward as new approaches to old concerns, such as jobs and unions, were shaped between 1933 and 1935.

Keywords:   Depression, African Americans, Detroit, self-reliance, inclusion, unemployment, unions
