NOTES FROM THE ACADEMY, TRANSCRIPT OF THE AMERICAN ACADEMY CONFERENCE ON THE NEGRO AMERICAN (MAY 14-15, 1965).
TO CLARIFY AND FIND STRATEGIES TO ERADICATE THE PROBLEMS OF THE NEGRO IN AMERICA, THE PARTICIPANTS AT THIS CONFERENCE DISCUSSED THE SPECIFIC PAPERS PRESENTED AND THE IDEAS THAT THEY GENERATED. AMONG THE MAIN PROBLEMS DISCUSSED WERE WHETHER NEGRO COLOR WAS A UNIQUE STIGMA REQUIRING LEGISLATION AND ANTIPOVERTY MEASURES, THE EXISTENCE OF A NEGRO CULTURE, THE GOALS OF INTEGRATION, HOUSING, FEDERAL RESPONSIBILITIES, THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT, NEGRO AND WHITE ATTITUDES, AND NEGRO AND WHITE CHURCHES. THE PARTICIPANTS AGREED THAT THERE IS A NEED FOR COMPENSATORY AND QUALITY EDUCATION TO PREVENT THE PERPETUATION OF THE PROBLEMS OF THE NEGRO AMERICAN. ECONOMIC PROBLEMS, THE WIDENING GAP IN NEGRO AND WHITE ECONOMIC GAINS, THE RELATIONSHIP OF FAMILY DISORGANIZATION TO EMPLOYMENT, AND THE QUESTION OF PREFERENTIAL TREATMENT OF NEGROES WERE ALSO DISCUSSED. IN ADDITION, THE PARTICIPANTS EXPRESSED THEIR VIEWS ON NEGRO-OWNED BUSINESSES, NEGRO POLITICS AND RELIGION, AND THE EFFECTS OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT ON LEGISLATION AND ON SKILLED AND LOW SOCIOECONOMIC STATUS NEGROES.
