Assessment of the Status of African-Americans. Volume IV: Social, Political and Economic Issues in Black America.
Reed, Wornie L., Ed.
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 this study. This, the fourth, considers social, political, and economic issues for black Americans. These issues are discussed in the following essays: (1) "Stratification and Subordination: Change and Continuity" (E. Yvonne Moss and Wornie L. Reed); (2) "Race and Inequality in the Managerial Age" (William Darity, Jr.); (3) "Black Political Participation: The Search for Power" (E. Yvonne Moss); and (4) "The Search for Voice: Ideology and Perspective in the Black Community" (Philip L. Clay). An appendix lists the members of the project study group and other contributors. Each chapter contains references. (SLD)
