African-Americans: essential perspectives
Auburn House, 1993 - Biography & Autobiography - 160 pages
The authors describe and evaluate the contemporary status of African-Americans through the prism of fundamental perspectives such as economics, politics, criminal justice administration, and social policy. They analyze data drawn from a range of two to five decades to assess just how African-Americans have fared over time. They find mixed results, describing how the advances of the 1960s have been eroded in the 1970s and 1980s. The hard realities of poverty, unemployment, and the consequential problems related thereto clearly afflict African-Americans to a degree highly disproportionate to their population segment. The need to essentially reform American institutions to effect the dramatically needed changes in how they interact with and impact on African-Americans is stressed.
