"The Barrios and the Ghettos Have Organized!" Community Action, Political Acrimony, and the War on Poverty in San Antonio.
Journal of Urban History, v28 n2 p158-83 Jan 2002
Discusses the history and problems of the Community Action Program and the War on Poverty from the 1960s-1980s, highlighting San Antonio, Texas, and the San Antonio Neighborhood Youth Organization. Suggests that the War on Poverty's historical significance was more political than economic, and it emerged as a program that Hispanic and Black San Antonians considered rightfully their own. (SM)
