Biographical / Historical

Newark's Business and Industrial Coordinating Council (BICC), 46 Branford Place, was established in 1963 to address inequities in job opportunities, especially apparent in the predominantly white work force then constructing the new Barringer High School and the Rutgers-Newark campus, and unemployment among minority groups. Among the early leaders of BICC were Peter V. R. Schuyler of United Way, K. Wade Bennett and Charles W. Garrison of Bamberger's, and Derek T. Winans. Kenneth A. Gibson was co-chair of the Community Affairs Committee.
