The father of John Conyers Jr. — John Conyers Sr. — was an auto worker and part of a whole cohort of young Black auto workers, including¬† Coleman Young and Dave Moore, who were at the heart of the organization of Ford and its giant River Rouge plant as well as in the middle of the political transformation of Detroit back in the day. No doubt their readiness to battle titans and their superior political intelligence left their mark on a young John Conyers Jr. Long may they run!
