    ... The rare photo is among 30 acquired by the Bentley Historical Library last year from a private donor that capture a place and time often overlooked by history: black Civilian Conservation Corps camps in Michigan and elsewhere during the Great Depression. The photos are the only known images of the state's segregated, all-black camps.

    [​IMG]

    Svenja Gudell , Contributor

White households earned at least $21,000 more per year than black households in all but two of the 50 largest markets analyzed (Tampa, where white households earned $13,749 more; and Riverside, Calif., at $17,319).
