(p.199) Chapter Eight Charting a New Course for Black Workers
The Making of Black Detroit in the Age of Henry Ford

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter demonstrates the efforts of black Detroiters and black Ford workers in laying the foundation for their version of civil rights unionism. The Detroit Civic Rights Committee (CRC) charted a course connecting local challenges to the racial status quo to larger national efforts. Through the collaboration of the CRC and the local chapter of the National Negro Congress (NNC), the chapter traces the footsteps of black Detroiters as they walked down this path.

Keywords:   civil rights, unionism, Detroiters, Detroit, Civic Rights Committee, CRC, National Negro Congress, NCC
