SOCIAL CHANGE AND THE NEGRO PROBLEM.
ROSE, ARNOLD
A FEW OF THE DYNAMIC FORCES OF CHANGE THAT HAVE BROUGHT ABOUT A NEW SITUATION FOR THE AMERICAN NEGRO ARE PRESENTED. THESE FORCES HAVE OCCURRED WITHOUT A VIOLENT REVOLUTION AND WITHIN MANY INSTITUTIONS, THE FORCES WERE MOST COMPLETE IN THE ECONOMIC SPHERES, LESS SO IN THE LEGAL AND POLITICAL SPHERES, AND LEAST IN THE SPHERE OF SOCIAL RELATIONSHIP. HOWEVER, THE DEVELOPMENT IN AMERICAN RACE RELATIONS FROM 1942 TO 1964 WAS THE MOST RAPID AND DRAMATIC SOCIAL CHANGE EVER TO HAVE OCCURRED WITHOUT A VIOLENT REVOLUTION. THE FORCES THAT BROUGHT ABOUT THE CHANGE IN THE AMERICAN NEGRO PROBLEM INCLUDED A CONTINUATION OF INDUSTRIALIZATION AND TECHNICAL ADVANCE, THE HIGH LEVEL OF MOBILITY AMONG THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, ECONOMIC PROSPERITY, THE EDUCATION OF MINORITY GROUPS, AND AN INCREASED AMERICAN AWARENESS OF WORLD OPINION. CONSISTENT SUPPORT FOR CIVIL RIGHTS ON THE PART OF THE SUPREME COURT, WITH A LESSER SUPPORT FROM THE OTHER BRANCHES OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND OF THE NORTHERN STATE GOVERNMENTS, HAS PROVED HELPFUL. ALSO INFLUENTIAL WERE THE PROPAGANDA AND EDUCATIONAL EFFORTS FOR MORE EQUAL IMPLEMENTATION OF CIVIL RIGHTS.
