The Conservative Vice Lords Inc.,
will sponsor a cookout Sunday, Sept. 15, in an effort to help youngsters
get back in school.
The huge affair, scheduled from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., will be held in the
3200 block of Lexington between Kedzie ave., and Spaulding.
Spokesman Clarence Steele, Vice president of the Vice Lords, told the
Defender the purpose of the affair.
“The idea is to tell them how it is with us because we didn’t
stay in school and get the education necessary to find a good job,”
He stated that the Vice Lords had the backing of local businessmen in
trying to set up training programs and scholarships, as well as finding
jobs for young people who wanted to go to school.
“Now we need outside help in getting employment, more scholarships,
and more counseling for those who can’t go back.”
