The new urban leaders by Joyce A Ladner( Book )

13 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 563 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book allows these leaders to speak in their own voices about problems they deal with daily. They talk about their own backgrounds, what attracted them to their work, the roles they and their organizations play in shaping solutions to critical problems, and their assessments of the major pitfalls and limitations they face." "Ladner presents the experiences of these leaders to support a powerful call for longterm reinvestment strategies, urging cities to forge partnerships in which government, private nonprofit organizations, and communities join forces to improve opportunities in the inner city. Compelling in its message and scope, The New Urban Leaders illustrates that change is possible even in the most daunting conditions."--Jacket

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume 26: Joyce Ladner is introduced by her sister Dorie Ladner. Both were deeply involved with SNCC in Mississippi. Joyce and Dorie's parents were like many African American parents in that they understood how to survive under Jim Crow and constantly worried about the welfare of their children. Nevertheless, the Ladners taught their children not to accept insult and, in their own way, acted as a supportive rearguard. NAACP Mississippi Field Secretary Medgar Evers was a profound influence on both Ladner sisters. Joyce Ladner traces her roots in the tiny Black community of Palmers Crossing to civil rights activism

SNCC's own political naiveté is also discussed. Panelists include SNCC veterans from different eras in the organization's history

Lives of promise, lives of pain : young mothers after new chance by Janet Quint( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph reports the findings of a study based on interviews with 50 young mothers who participated in a national research and demonstration program called New Chance. It explains that New Chance aims to increase the employment, economic self-sufficiency, and general well-being of young women on Aid to Families with Dependent Children who are high school dropouts, and to enhance the learning and development of their children as well. Chapter 1 supplies a context for understanding the report and its findings. After a statistical overview of sample members' activities after receiving their high school equivalency certificate, Chapter 2 explores the meaning of progress for this group of young women. Chapters 3 through 5 cover the experiences of these young women in the workplace, at school, and in their personal lives. Chapter 6 considers the women's backgrounds before they joined New Chance, then examines their experiences in the program, and, finally, considers their activities after leaving New Chance. Chapter 7 takes note of the significant degree of variation within the sample and its implications for program design. Chapter 8 reviews the study's key findings and then suggests lessons and possible directions for research, programs, and policies that arise from these findings. (Nb)

In spite of the civil rights gains made during the 1960s many African Americans are still trapped in a life of poverty without opportunity. In an effort to understand the problems facing these black Americans, reporter Cheryl Alexander interviews two African American men of similar background, but from different generations: Charles Woods, now a successful upper middle class professional, and John Cunningham, a 17 year old high school senior, who hopes to be the first college graduate in his family and to move into the middle class. In addition to talking with the men, Alexander interviews family members as well as professionals concerned with this problem including: Douglas Glasgow, Gerald Jaynes, Fred Harris, James Comer, Reginald Wilson and Samuel Woodard. The second half of the program is a panel discussion by experts Joyce Ladner, Eleanor Holmes Norton, Walter Stafford, and moderated by Kenneth Walker about why some black Americans have been left behind in the move towards equality
