Proceedings of the National Workshop on the Urban Poor, Manpower and Consumer Potentials (March 26-27, 1968).
Chamber of Commerce of the United States, Washington, DC.
The purpose of this workshop was to work out sound, practical means of promoting better intergroup communication in American cities and improving community action on hard-core unemployment and other problems of the urban poor. Frustrations and aspirations of ghetto people were illustrated in a film. Panel interviews and an audience question session were held with Negro youth leaders. Prepared papers, summaries, and remarks were offered on psychological, social, and other factors in urban unrest; the need for indigenous ghetto leadership; leadership through ghetto self help in Detroit; manpower and consumer potentials of the urban poor; recruiting and job coaching of the hard core unemployed in Chicago; and accommodating employer entry job requirements in Missouri. (The document includes references; research data on 17 indicators of future urban violence in several dozen high probability cities; and statistical data on labor force trends, variation in unemployment rates, incidence of poverty, proportions of Negroes in major cities and regious, educational attainments of Negroes, occupations of nonwhites, income growth and distributions, and consumer expenditures.)
