“[South Side of Chicago]. Although the percentage of Chicago blacks making $7,000 or more jumped from 26% to 58% between 1960 and 1970, a large percentage still remained unemployed. The black unemployment rate generally is assumed to be twice that of the national Unemployment Rate published monthly by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.” Date: 05/1974 – Photographer: John H.
