Howard Jenkins, Jr.
 

As the first African American on the National Labor Relations Board, Howard Jenkins, Jr., served under five presidents. He wrote 40,000 decisions and dissents as he pursued his personal mission "to help them discover blacks in the industrial work force, and to get it firmly fixed in our national labor policy that discrimination on the basis of race or sex is an unfair labor practice."
