Minorities: Labor Problem

About This Item

Rough cut edit (derived from a 16mm film negative) of a KRON-TV Assignment Four documentary from 1962, which looks at the problems of racial discrimination faced by African American workers and other ethnic minorities in America. Includes scenes from a roundtable debate on this issue, a selection panel considering an applicant, views of men trying to find work at a labor exchange and several men speaking to camera. One of them states that: "The entire country has got a stake in discrimination in employment. There are great resoures of manpower which are not being used and individuals are being frustrated as to their basic rights and opportunities." A complete and fully edited 16mm print of this film has yet to be found.
