Black/Brown/White Relations: Race Relations in the 1970s.
Willie, Charles V., Ed.
The collection of papers in this book present an analysis of the effects of institutional racism on all races. The first part of the book deals with seeking definitions of the race problem and explores the various facets of race relations in the 1970s, including: (1) the black view of a national population policy and the fear of racial genocide; (2) the problems and prospects of black students at integrated colleges; (3) a literary analysis of the black vision of despair; (4) black liberation and women's liberation; (5) ethnic resentment of Federal programs; (6) the attribution of prejudice to self and others; (7) racial attitudes of native American preschoolers; and (7) institutional racism. The second part of the book is devoted to the discovery of strategies for institutional change, and includes discussions of: (1) community development and social change; (2) a historical framework for multicultural education; (3) the political scenes in Gary, Indiana, and in the urban South; and (4) the mental health implications of methods used by blacks to negotiate white educational institutions.
