Race Relations in the "Kingdom" of Callaway.
Missouri State Advisory Committee to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights.
This report is a first effort of the Missouri Advisory Committee to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights to determine the current dimensions of race relations in rural areas of Missouri. Callaway County and its county seat, Fulton, are described, and poblems faced by blacks in the schools and in obtaining housing and employment are explored, the accessibility of locally and federally funded services is analyzed, and conclusions and recommendations of the advisory committee are outlined. They include: (1) improving communication between the black community and the schools; (2) improving job opportunities for minorities and women through effective affirmative action plans; (3) improving the allocation of local funds and municipal construction efforts in black neighborhoods; and (4) improving relations between the black community and the police department through a community relations program.
