Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection consists of the papers of Charles Bratt and Clarence Johnson, both employees of the World War II Era United States Employment Services (USES), part of War Manpower Commission. The documents deal with the work of the Committee on Fair Employment Practices (Executive Order 9346) to prevent discrimination based on race, creed, color, or national origin. Special attention is drawn to discrimination within Unions. Also included is material on the internment of Japanese Americans during the war.
As an activist for oppressed people, Charles Bratt has fought for equality for people of all races, creeds, colors, and national origins.
