The State of Black America 1980.
Williams, James D., Ed.
The common thread that runs through the papers that comprise this volume is an assessment of the decade of the 1970s as a time of retreat, retrenchment and lost opportunities in the long struggle to create equality of opportunity in the United States. Black America ended the decade in a less favorable position than it began the 70s. As it moves into the 80s it faces the almost certain possiblity that it will be entering a decade in which blacks will be hard pressed to hold onto many of the tenuous gains made in the past. The papers include: "Economic Progress" by Bernard E. Anderson; "Black Families in the 70's" by Robert B. Hill; "Education: A Matter of Grave Concern" by Bernard C. Watson; "Energy--a New Day" by Ellis Cose; "The State of Social Services in the Black Community" by Georgia L. McMurray; "Changing Trends in Housing" by Wilhelmina A. Leigh; "On Politics" by Charles V. Hamilton; "Crime: A Major Problem in Black America" by Garry A. Mendez, Jr.; and "Thoughts on a Conflict" by Leslie W. Dunbar. Conclusions, recommendations, and a chronology of events in 1979 complete this volume. (RLV)
