In 1987 a project was undertaken to assess the status of African Americans in the United States in the topical areas to be addressed by the National Research Council's Study Committee on the Status of Black Americans: education, employment, income and occupations, political participation and the administration of justice, social and cultural change, health status and medical care, and the family. Six volumes resulted from the study. This volume, the third, considers education, ranging from early childhood through postsecondary education. The following essays are included: (1) "The Civil Rights Movement and Educational Change" (Meyer Weinberg); (2) "The Social and Historical Context: A Case Study of Philanthropic Assistance" (Charles V.
