Performer/Participant Interviewer: Kae Halonen
Summary Jim Jacobs was interviewed by Kae Halonen as part of the Motor City Voices Project. Jim was born in Brooklyn, New York. He started to become politically involved while still in high school, and continued while in college. He was active in the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) shortly after the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962. He took a leading role in the Radical Education Program, an offshoot of the SDS. In 1967, Jacobs helped run the Radicals in the Professions Conference. This conference brought radicals together in one place to explore ways for academics to participate in community activism while changing the culture and politics of higher education and the white-collar professions. That year, he was invited to Macomb Community College to speak about the SDS. After the presentation, he was offered a position to teach political science at the college, where he remains today. Jacobs continued to be an active participant in the educational movement for equality in the workplace and neighborhoods in Detroit. He moved to Detroit in 1968 and became familiar with the Dodge Revolutionary Union Movement (DRUM) when he was involved in Ron March's campaign for a trustee position with the UAW at Dodge Main. He became involved in the radical labor movement handing out leaflets to white workers at the plants in order to involve them in activities initiated by the Revolutionary Union Movement
