This chapter details changes Rosemarie witnessed toward the end of World War II in Chicago—black businesses disappearing, and it becoming harder and harder for black people (especially black men) to find jobs. She shares specific stories about her own experience going to downtown Chicago to apply for jobs and not even being considered for them because of racism.
