An Obituary to Affirmative Action and a Call for Self-Reliance.
Goodwin, E. Marvin
This essay contends that the goals of the Civil Rights movement, desegregation and integration of schools and public facilities, were misplaced, and that what blacks needed then, and need today, was equalization of resources and facilities, and equal representation on boards of education. Continued efforts at reliance of those outside the black community, as embodied by affirmative action programs, have produced minimal results. A call is issued to blacks to look within themselves, individually and collectively, for solutions to the host of problems that continue to plague the majority of blacks in the United States. (DB)
