Description:

The first issue of W.C. Informer focuses on several postwar political issues, and criticizes a recent vote on extending the Fair Employment Practices Commission (FEPC) in light of the service of black soldiers during World War II. The FEPC, enacted in 1941 by executive order, prohibited discrimination in the employment of workers in defense industries or government because of race, creed, color, or national origin. Also discussed are ant-German sentiment, European releief efforts, and an upcoming speech by George Harrison on "The Nature of Group Hatred".

W.C. Informer was a publication of the Woman's College Chapter of the Committee for North Carolina, an affiliate of the Southern Conference on Human Welfare (SCHW) located at the Woman's College of the University of North Carolina in Greensboro. SCHW was at the forefront of early civil rights and social justice issues.
