Scot Nakagawa: Economic Rights are Civil Rights
GRITtv: The demand for jobs was the great unmet demand of the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. While many have made that point, few have talked plainly about why the demand for federal investment in training and jobs for the unemployed dropped out of the picture of civil rights. Scot Nakagawa is not afraid to talk about it. Nakagawa is co-founder of Changelab, a social movement think tank, and the author of the regularly provocative Race Files.
