In 1950, a bunch of African American employees on the Studebaker manufacturing unit in South Bend met in mystery. Their venture was once to construct houses clear of the factories and slums the place they have been compelled to reside. They got here from the South to make a greater existence for themselves and their young children, yet they discovered Jim Crow within the North besides. The assembly gave delivery to higher houses of South Bend, and a triumph opposed to the entrenched racism of the days took all their braveness, intelligence and perseverance. writer Gabrielle Robinson tells the tale in their fight and offers an intimate glimpse right into a a part of background that each one too frequently is forgotten.
