A Message From the Vice Chairman
President Kennedy said, "Denial of the right to work is unfair, regardless of its victim. It is doubly unfair to throw its burden most heavily on someone because of his race or color." One of the most constructive forces in lifting this racial burden has been the President's Committee on Equal Employment Opportunity which John Kennedy established, under the vigorous and dedicated leadership of Lyndon B. Johnson first as Vice President and now as President. Of course, there is much that remains to be done. It is to that unfinished work that the future activities of this Committee will be dedicated.
