Enforcement Executives Conference in Detroit, Michigan, Friday, June 22, 1979. [Remarks].
Days, Drew S., III
This paper addresses the issue of affirmative action and emphasizes the positive aspects of the ongoing battle for racial justice. It is argued that despite pessimism, opposition, distortions, and continuing discrimination against blacks, civil rights enforcement continues to make significant progress. It is also pointed out that those individuals who criticize efforts by the Federal government and the courts to provide equal opportunities for blacks in education and other areas, fail to realize the progress that has been made since the civil rights movement began. Reference is made to specific cases in which the government or the courts upheld or clarified the civil rights of blacks and other minorities. (Author/EB)
