Association To Better
Conditions of Local
Negroes Hears Dancy

"America can never take care of
the problems of the world until it
takes care of its own internal prob-
lems," declared Mr. John C. Dancy,
executive director of the Detroit Ur-
ban League, befor the audience
gathered to witness the burning of
the mortgage of the Dunbar Com-
munity Association Sunday at the
Dunbar Center at 420 N. Fourth.
Dunbar 21 Years Old
The ceremony marked a high point
in the 21-year history of the Dunbar,
which is now free of this debt con-
tracted in 1937 when it moved into
its present building. The Dunbar
Association is made up of a group of
Negroes and whites working together
for the "betterment of the civic,
moral and social condition of the
colored people of Ann Arbor"
Dancy went on, "The Dunbar is a
healthysign. Here are two races met
with a common purpose, working to-
gether to help each other." If Amer-
ica is to be great, he said, then all of
us must help with the burdens, and
all of us must appreciate the values
that others can contribute.
"The way to lift America," Dancy
asserted, "is to lift ourselves together.
America cannot rise higher than the
lowest individual in America. There
is a need for all racial and religious
groups to be integrated into one great
movement through education."
One Great Movement Needed
Commenting on the so - called
Blighted Areas of Detroit, where
Dancy has found 18 people living in
a six rogm house, he said, "Those
people dian't elect to live there. They
were literally forced there by circum-
stances. Such conditions must not
exist if we expect the very best re-
sults out of all people.
"But," he continued, "I believe the
problem in America is nearing a solu-
tion. More people are determined
that all people have arbetter chance
to live and work. and exist, with
decent housing, and for children to
live under normal circumstances and
A history of the Dunbar Center,
prepared by Charles Cromwell, sec-
retary of the advisory board, was
read by James T. Overbey, vice-presi-
dent of the association.
Organized in 1923, the association
was the outgrowth of a plan of the
Rev. Ralph M. Gilbert, pastor of the
Second Baptist Church. It was then
that it became a part of the Ann Ar-
bor Community Fund Association.
