The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1933, was a federal unemployment relief program designed to put single young men to work during the Great Depression. The CCC employed over 2.5 million men between 1933 and 1942, including 250,000 African Americans, who served in segregated companies. This collection is comprised of 30 photographs and digitized images of CCC African American enrollees assigned to work in Michigan companies, including Company 670, Camp Bitely and Company 2695, Camp Free Soil.
