The State of Black Michigan: 1984.
Thomas, Frances S., Ed.
Each of the eight chapters of this report on life conditions of blacks living in Michigan addresses a different issue. The chapter titles (and their authors) are as follows: (1) "A Demographic Overview of Blacks in Michigan" (Maxie C. Jackson, Jr.); (2) "The Economic Status of Blacks in Michigan" (Karl D. Gregory); (3) "Unemployment, Employment, and Training in Michigan" (Richard W. Thomas); (4) "Black Political Participation in Michigan" (Wilbur C. Rich); (5) "Black Crime in Michigan" (Homer C. Hawkins); (6) "Black Youth in Michigan" (Algea Othella Harrison); (7) "The Media in Michigan" (Gilbert A. Maddox); and (8) "Summary and Conclusions: Racial Disparities Persist in Michigan" (Joe T. Darden). The concluding chapter, which analyzes general findings, asserts that the socioeconomic gap between blacks and whites in Michigan remains wide, and that true black progress will remain impossible to attain as long as this gap continues. It is predicted that, given the present conservative climate and the persisting attacks on equal opportunity policies and programs, it will be a long time before blacks reach parity with whites. (KH)
