Twenty Years After Brown; A Report of the United States Commission on Civil Rights.
Commission on Civil Rights, Washington, DC.
This volume contains a series of concise reports summarizing the status of civil rights for minority groups in education, employment, public accomodations, and housing since the Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court school desegregation decision in 1954. The focus of each of these reports is on the ways that the lives of blacks and other minorities have changed and the progress that has or has not been made in providing equal opportunities, equal education, and equal facilities to minority groups during the past 20 years. Legislation which was enacted and policies which were implemented to eliminate past and present discriminatory practices against blacks, females and other minorities are reviewed and the impact of these efforts on the social and economic status of the various minority groups are discussed. Findings of the United States Commission on Civil Rights and its recommendations for achieving equal opportunity where it is lacking in education, employment, housing, public accomodations, political participation, and the administration of justice are outlined. Tables and charts are included which provide statistical data related to the issues discussed. (EB)
