The historical cookbook of the American Negro by National Council of Negro Women( Book )

In 1958, the National Council of Negro Women published a cookbook documenting their food heritage. Organized to serve as a means of observing annual holidays, it presented recipes from the earliest days of the nation, with contextual commentary. The cookbook marched boldly into territory beyond plantation life with exotica such as sukiyaki and Ceylon curry. A new reprint of The Historical Cookbook of the American Negro offers insight into both the cooking of the first generations of African Americans and the self-perception of their female descendants at the outset of the sixties' civil rights movement

Women & housing : a report on sex discrimination in five American cities by National Council of Negro Women( Book )

6 editions published between 1975 and 1977 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Public hearings and workshops were held in five metropolitan areas to gather data about the problems women in American cities face when they try to acquire and maintain a place to live. The chief findings were: (1) women have faced and continue to face discrimination in marketing, lending, and shelter-related services; (2) discrimination against women has historically been overt but is becoming increasingly subtle; (3) women are not aware of the nature or extent of sex discrimination; (4) myths and stereotypes are the underpinnings of prejudicial attitudes toward women; (5) statistics pertinent to women's access to shelter or housing-related services are not available; (6) women outside male-headed households represent a sharply growing demographic trend; (7) discrimination on account of sex is frequently compounded with discrimination on account of some other characteristic; (8) lending institutions have discounted women's incomes when making decisions on applications for mortgage credit; (9) sex discrimination based in the law further reinforces sex discrimination in housing; and (10) women are virtually excluded from policy making jobs in the nation's shelter system. Recommendations which encourage solutions to these problems include public education efforts, government compliance efforts, data collection, affirmative government housing programs, local women's coalitions, and expansion of opportunities for women to participate in housing policy-making decisions.
