More About This Textbook

Overview

The Black Report is a multifaceted statistical examination of contemporary Black America. The Report grew out of the mounting concerns about the present character of African-American life and anxiety over seriously deteriorating possibilities for the future, all of which demands a more critical, objective assessment of status and directions. This inaugural edition of the Report covers six major topics—black demography, health, education, economics, political empowerment, and youth; it covers these issues by discussing the current sociopolitical context, emphasizing the society's increasing conservatism toward the problems of disadvantaged minorities. A concluding section elaborates on such observations in considering the implications of the data for policymakers and the African-American community itself. This is a valuable ready-reference resource for anyone who has an interest in understanding and/or improving the conditions of African-Americans.
