Description:

The seventh issue of W.C. Informer reports on the need for new housing units in the postwar years. Government housing policy was a major part of the federal urban renewal programs of the 1940s - 1970s, which ultimately displaced many predominantly black residential and business districts. The newsletter also discussed the United Nations Organization's response to work hunger, political developments in Spain and Germany, and a pending bill exempting railroads from anti-monopoly actions.

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.
