An Analysis of Problems and Perspective of the Black Aged: Preparation for the Year 2000.
Turner, Clinton V.; Sheppard, N. Alan
This paper addresses some of the problems and concerns of the nation's Black aged with special emphasis toward the year 2000. Dramatization of the plight of the Black aged may proceed in a number of directions. This paper focuses on strategies that may be developed within academic institutions, local communities, professional and other organizations, and at whatever levels feasible at generating support. Special emphasis is placed upon education, employment, health, and housing inasmuch as these usually rank high among problem areas specified by blacks themselves. Although there are many euphemisms for growing old (i.e., senior citizens, the elderly, the aged, the aging, older Americans, and old folks), this paper uses "the aged" and "the elderly." (Author)
