Washington DC: U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, 1974. A Report of the Maryland State Advisory Committee to the US Commission on Civil Rights prepared for the information and consideration of the Commission. Side stapled yellow paper wrappers with black title to front panel. Light soiling / browning to edges of wrappers, but clean and bright overall. A study of discrimination based on race within various trades such as electrician, carpenter, roofer, painter, plumber, welder. Numbers of union and non-union workers in these (and additional) trades are listed including minority and non-minority workers. Quotes from multiple minority workers about their personal experiences with inequality in hiring / training / jobs are included. An interesting study made during an important time of Civil Rights in our country. It seems that despite federal laws, there was still a large disadvantage for minorities seeking employment in construction trades in Baltimore. At the end of the end of the study data, there is a chapter on "recommendations" and several appendices including follow-up letters from attorneys representing african americans, letters from government officials, updates on following up with individual construction agencies, etc. 59 pages. BALT/011420.
