HOPE 68 full report

Subject

Focus: HOPE (Organization) | Detroit--social conditions

Description

Focus: HOPE investigated the high cost of food and medicine’s role in building urban frustration. With Wayne State University, they conducted a study of the costs lower-income neighborhoods paid for groceries and prescription drugs. The comprehensive findings illuminated the high cost of being poor, lack of choice in products, and underlying causes for these inequities. The breadth of both qualitative and quantitative data revealed that the difference in services often fell along racial lines. The survey was highly influential and brought national attention to a central cause of the 1967 Civil Unrest. Source: Focus: HOPE Records, Box 4, folder 15.
