Dark ghetto : dilemmas of social power by Kenneth Bancroft Clark( Book )

91 editions published between 1965 and 1994 in 8 languages and held by 3,000 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a skilled indictment of the terrible failure of our affluent society, even in the ‘liberal’ North, to meet the racial problem it has created and now perpetuates -- a state of degradation and frustration for millions of its citizens. The immediate cause of the "pathology of the ghetto" is not, Clark argues, the fact of segregation. Rather it is the loss of status and self- respect, the frustration, the overwhelming sense of impotence and defeat that cause apathy, crime, addiction, broken families, squalid living conditions, and all the other symptoms of social pathology. Clark raises the questions, attempts some answers, and proposes a strategy for change within the framework of our present economic and social system. This book is intellectually stimulating; it is necessary reading for everyone interested in the most critical of our domestic issues and should be required for those whites who honestly seek to participate in the civil rights struggle

Pathos of power by Kenneth Bancroft Clark( Book )

14 editions published between 1973 and 1976 in English and Spanish and held by 1,011 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses the ability of psychotechnology to control the fragility and pathos of the ego, which can create and validate humanity while also rationalizing cruelties and inhumanity. The negative, animalistic characteristics of man must be subordinated to the positive values of love and empathy without sacrificing creativity or selective capacities. It is proposed that a program of direct biochemical intervention be implemented to control negativistic tendencies. Ultimately, world leaders who have the nuclear power to determine the fate of humanity should be given the earliest perfected form of appropriate drugs. This requirement would control the barbaric use of power and insure that survival of the human species is not sacrificed to the personal ego pathos of powerful individuals
The Negro protest : James Baldwin, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King talk with Kenneth B. Clark by Kenneth Bancroft Clark( Book )

19 editions published between 1963 and 1965 in 3 languages and held by 932 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Clark, professor of psychology at City College, New York, with author James Baldwin, minister Malcolm X., and the reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. These men are percieved by white Americans as leaders within the Negro community. The book should be a helpful introduction to the feelings of the Negro community for those white people who wish to understand the concerns of their Negro neightbors more fully
A Relevant war against poverty; a study of community action programs and observable social change by Kenneth Bancroft Clark( Book )

16 editions published between 1968 and 1970 in English and held by 882 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twelve urban community action programs (cap) were examined in depth to determine how each of them operationally defined community action and to evaluate their performance. The criteria used were: (1) a clear statement of purpose and programs consistent with that purpose; (2) strong independent leadership and a built-in evaluation and accountability system; (3) some form of involvement of the poor on the policy making level; (4) the development of dependable allies to protect the integrity of the programs; and (5) observable evidence of actual positive changes in the condition of the poor. The de facto cap goals were found to be: (1) mediating between the poor and the privileged; (2) heading off social eruption; (3) molding individual behavior so that the poor would become more"socially responsible" and imitative of the middle class; and only then (4) acting as agents for community development. The programs in general were found to be limited to services for the amelioration of poverty or limited to opening up opportunities without attempting to cope with the central or causal problems of poverty. Since the poor are virtually powerless, a coalition of professionals and the poor is recommended as a strategy to gain power. (Dm)
Racial identity in context : the legacy of Kenneth B. Clark by Kenneth Bancroft Clark( Book )

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Racial Identity in Context: The Legacy of Kenneth B. Clark is both a tribute to and an evaluation of the work and legacy of Kenneth B. Clark, the psychologist whose groundbreaking studies on racial identity helped shape the momentous Brown v. Board of Education decision in 1954. Clark's seminal work serves as the springboard for the contributors' discussion of the role of racial identity in the on-going struggle for equality for African Americans. The progress toward racial equality notwithstanding, race continues to define the culture of the United States, keeping its citizens from developing the just society envisioned by Clark and his contemporaries
A possible reality; a design for the attainment of high academic achievement for inner-city students by Kenneth Bancroft Clark( Book )

7 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is composed of two sections, the first being a proposal for a design for raising the academic performance of inner city children. A statement of the problem is followed by a discussion of the prevalent theories seeking to explain underachievement, such as demographic, sociological, psychological, physiological, and biological-genetic explanations. Focus on the basic assumptions of a proposed educational design for the effective education of children in the District of Columbia public schools leads to the formulation of a design encompassing curriculum, educational personnel (teachers, executives, educational aides--paraprofessionals, and tutors), parents, students, evaluation of student performance, and overall organization--the governance and administration of public school systems. This section concludes with a discussion of barriers to be overcome in the implementation of such a proposal in the D.C. schools. The second section of the book deals with supplementary data on the characteristics of effective systems and programs, with detailed treatment of aspects of curriculum, personnel, student motivation, parent involvement, and organizational support that are significant for such systems and programs.

Assertive black...puzzled white by Donald K Cheek( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book on assertiveness from a black viewpoint proceeds from the assumption that there are a large number of black people who could be helped to improve their social and personal functioning by a therapeutic approach based on the psychological totality of the black experience in American society. Included are discussions of: (1) preparing a black person for assertive living; (2) what reactions from whites the assertive black can expect and how these reactions should be met; (3) what happens in a step-by-step black assertiveness program; (4) which techniques are best for assisting blacks in developing assertive behavior and which won't work; and (5) how a black assertive behavior training program should be developed.

Toward humanity and justice : the writings of Kenneth B. Clark, scholar of the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision by Kenneth Bancroft Clark( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This first collection of black psychologist Dr. Kenneth B. Clark's body of work over a half-century reveals his insight into the fields of social science, education, politics, and the law. He tells the inside story of the ground-breaking studies he made of black public school children, showing they lacked self-esteem because they were treated separately and differently than their white counterparts. His social science papers were the basis for the U.S. Supreme Court's landmark decision of May 17, 1954, that state-sponsored segregation in public schools violated the Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution."--Jacket
The Educationally deprived; the potential for change by Kenneth Bancroft Clark( Book )

7 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Hazen Foundation authorized a study on the causes and implications of racial differences in academic motivation, with the longrun goal of improving higher educational opportunities for Negroes. The final phase of this study was a work conference by theorists and practitioners for discussion of the findings from two separate research methods. This book represents a synthesized presentation of the findings and discussion on the problem of motivation and the learning process. The papers presented at the work conference are the first several chapters of each section. These papers are: "Cultural deprivation theories: their social and psychological implications," Kenneth B. Clark; "Behavioral and environmental limits of change," Martin Deutsch; "Changing aspiration, images and identities," Hylan Lewis; "a review of the issues and literature of cultural deprivation theory," Kenneth B. Clark and Lawrence Plotkin; "Political and social limits of change," Francis Keppel; "The Metropolitan Education Park; its potential for change," Thomas F. Pettigrew; and, "Education for employment in human-service occupations," Frank Reissman and Alan Gartner. The papers are followed by an edited account of the debate on the ideas and findings presented. (Jm)

The Negro student at integrated colleges by Kenneth Bancroft Clark( Book )

3 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Negro students who had sought assistance from the national scholarship service and fund for negro students to attend interracial colleges were followedup to determine the degree of their progress and adjustment in college and after graduation. Data for 509 students were obtained from a precollege information sheet prepared when the scholarships were awarded from college transcripts and post-graduation questionnaires. The major findings were--students' dropout rates were lower than the national average for whites and for negroes attending segregated colleges. Financial difficulties were the major reasons for leaving college. On the whole, college grades were average and depended more on the students' high school averages and their parents' education than on their parents' income or the students' precollege test scores. Nearly all the students judged their college experience favorably, but some indicated that they encountered racial problems and pressures. Generally, it was found that the college-trained negro was not forced to take a menial job but was not fully integrated into private industry. He still had to depend upon government and private agencies for a job in which he could use his skills. (Bd)
