A Time for Change and Challenge: Civil Rights in Colorado, 1966-1969.
Crow, Eleanor G.
The minority groups of Colorado--past, present, and future--are investigated in detail in this report by the Civil Rights Commission of Colorado. The commission uses the 1967 U. S. Civil Rights Commission report and the Kerner Report to clarify the problems of minority groups and to establish a foundation for programs combating these problems. Minority groups are defined, and specific problems, complaints, and actions taken are examined. One appendix to the document probes the 1968-69 Ethnic Census of Colorado's Institutions of Higher Learning; tables indicate the total number of faculty and students (full- and part-time) involved in higher education and break down the results according to ethnic group representation (Negro, Hispano, Oriental, or American Indian). Other appendices are included. (DB)
