5 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of the Stop the Violence movement among rap music artists and music industry colleagues is told, along with the story of a video that was produced as part of this initiative. The Stop the Violence project grew out of the reaction to violence among concert goers at a 1987 rap concert on Long Island (New York). Rap musicians have joined projects that are centered around the "Self Destruction" video, which is a rap performance calling for an end to violence and promoting positive action by young people to combat crime. The book contains lyrics, statements by the rappers, statistics about urban violence, letters from young people about their experiences of black-on-black crime, and the story of the Stop the Violence movement. Comments by the artists complement the project. Contains a 32-item reading list prepared by some contributors. (Sld)

The state of Black America, 1980 by National Urban League( Book )

4 editions published between 1980 and 1982 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The common thread that runs through the papers that comprise this volume is an assessment of the decade of the 1970s as a time of retreat, retrenchment and lost opportunities in the long struggle to create equality of opportunity in the United States. Black America ended the decade in a less favorable position than it began the 70s. As it moves into the 80s it faces the almost certain possiblity that it will be entering a decade in which blacks will be hard pressed to hold onto many of the tenuous gains made in the past. The papers include: "Economic Progress" by Bernard E. Anderson; "Black Families in the 70's" by Robert B. Hill; "Education: a Matter of Grave Concern" by Bernard C. Watson; "Energy--a New Day" by Ellis Cose; "The State of Social Services in the Black Community" by Georgia L. McMurray; "Changing Trends in Housing" by Wilhelmina A. Leigh; "On Politics" by Charles V. Hamilton; "Crime: a Major Problem in Black America" by Garry A. Mendez, Jr.; And "Thoughts on a Conflict" by Leslie W. Dunbar. Conclusions, recommendations, and a chronology of events in 1979 complete this volume. (Rlv)

Less hype, more help : reducing juvenile crime, what works - and what doesn't by Richard A Mendel( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The goal of this report is to foster a national discussion about the complex and important challenges posed by youth crime in America, and to raise public awareness about promising approaches to youth crime that currently receive too little attention and too few resources. The report is divided into three sections. Part One details the wealth of new knowledge about the causes and cures for delinquency and youth violence that has been generated by researchers and practitioners over the past two decades, including new models that are dramatically reducing recidivism by youthful offenders and the on-set of delinquency by high-risk youth. Part Two examines two popular notions that have monopolized the public debate in recent years: (1) that youth crime is growing worse due to a generation of "juvenile superpredators"; and (2) that "adult time for adult crime" should be the basis for juvenile crime policy. These notions have prevented policymakers from recognizing the tremendous potential created by the advances in prevention and intervention techniques. Part Three looks at the nation's juvenile justice systems and the varied efforts to prevent delinquency and violence. Finally, this report issues a series of recommendations-strategic action to surmount the formidable obstacles to reform that now prevent state and local juvenile justice and delinquency prevention systems from doing what works. Appendix I is "Reducing Juvenile Crime: Recommendations from America's Police Chiefs" and Appendix ii is " The Costs of Juvenile Crime." (Contains 218 endnotes.) (Author/MKA)

When the marching stopped : an analysis of Black issues in the '70s by Andrew F Brimmer( Book )

3 editions published between 1973 and 1974 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents the contents of a conference held with scholars concerning their perceptions of some of the critical issues affecting black Americans. The formal presentations and the discussion that followed are reproduced in this book. The sessions explored several major forces impinging on the lives of the black and the poor and developed broad approaches to deal positively with those forces. What developed from the sessions was not a list of proposed solutions but a comprehensive examination of where the black person stands in the present social and economic milieu and a look at his prospects for the future. There were sessions addressing the following issues: (1) economic policy and income security, (2) personal security, law enforcement and the administration of justice, (3) the political process and (4) educational policy. Among the specific issues which were discussed are the following: (1) the economic outlook and employment prospects for blacks, (2) crime in the black community, (3) drug problems in the black community, (4) the political process and black liberation, (5) full employment, (6) critical issues in the education of minorities, (7) public school reform, and (8) integration.

Black Americans and public policy : perspectives of the National Urban League by National Urban League( Book )

3 editions published between 1988 and 1990 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of six commentaries represents the National Urban League's perspective on public policies needed to promote the interests of black Americans. Each commentary focuses on the present condition of blacks, details the impact of recent policy intiatives, and delineate's the League's proposals for improvement. "Black Americans and Public Policy" (D. G. Glasgow) urges policymakers not to use the Federal budget deficit as an excuse to avoid funding domestic programs that would improve the socioeconomic status of blacks. "Civil Rights and Social Justice" (R. McAlpine, B. J. Tidwell, and M. L. Jackson) recommends voting, education, employment, and housing policies that would counteract the deleterious reversals of the Reagan era. "Employment and Training: Toward the Year 2000" (B. C. Watson, V. Austin, and J. Reed) makes recommendations for improving the Job Training Partnership Act (jtpa), employment, and the national economy. "Education: In Search of Equity and Excellence" (D. J. Jones, E. W. Chunn, and S. G. Robinson) argues that the Federal Government has the primary responsibility for providing programs that meet the educational needs of blacks. "Welfare Reform: An Antipoverty Strategy" (S. Bergeron, J. Dixon, and D. G. Glasgow) recommends the development of a national antipoverty program based on reform of the Aid to Families with Dependent Children (afdc) program. "Black Economic Development: Still on the Margin" (B. J. Tidwell, K. V. Hill, and L. B. Malone) suggests reforms in minority business support, block grants, urban development grants, and enterprise zones. Each commentary includes a list of references. (Fmw)
