W.E.B. Dubois Library Hosts Feb. 17 “Job Fair for Black America”
February 10, 2015 — Chris Nolte, Lakeshore Public Radio — As part of National Black History Month, a job fair — specifically for the African-American community — is planned for Thursday, February 19th at the W.E.B. Dubois Library in downtown Gary, beginning at 10 a.m.
Clinical psychologist Eddie Taylor created the series of “Job Fairs for Black America” a few years ago, to help African-Americans get jobs that positively benefit themselves and their families. Dr. Taylor has also just released his second book, The Day the Crabs Got Out: The Revival of Black America, in which he explores empowerment and progression in the African-American community and discusses it’s current state in America.
He talked with the Lakeshore’s Chris Nolte about the job fair in Gary and one planned for Chicago Heights, as well as his new book that is closely linked to the job fair concept.
