FILE - This Aug. 28, 2013 file photo shows National Urban League President Marc Morial speaking at the Let Freedom Ring ceremony at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. While unemployment has been a major impediment to African Americans' economic progress, underemployment is a bigger obstacle for them than it is for whites or Hispanics, the National Urban League says in its latest State of Black America report. The annual report, called “One Nation Underemployed: Jobs Rebuild America,” noted that African Americans are twice as likely as whites to be unemployed. The unemployment rate for blacks was 12 percent in February, compared to 5.8 percent for whites. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster, File)
