Minority Organizations: A National Directory. Second Edition.
Cole, Katherine W., Ed.
This directory lists and describes 7,186 currently active organizations that were established by minority group members or which operate programs for the benefit of minority groups. (An additional 1,358 entries for "lost" or inactive organizations are also included.) For purposes of the directory, minority groups are defined as including Native Americans (both Alaska Natives and American Indians), and Black, Hispanic, and Asian Americans. Preceding the organizational listings is a brief discussion of the historical role of minority organizations in the United States. The main section of the directory provides each organization's current address, as well as a brief statement as to its purpose and/or activities. In addition to this section, several aids are provided: an alphabetical index, a geographical index, an index by racial/ethnic group, an index by organization function, a glossary, and sources of information for the directory. A tear-out data request form for updating future editions of the directory is attached. (GC)
