The young Negro in America, 1960-1980 by Samuel D Proctor( Book )

13 editions published between 1966 and 1970 in English and Spanish and held by 789 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book discusses the young negro's drive toward full social freedom and conjectures about what its implications will be by 1980 when the youth of the 1960's will be the leaders in society. The material is presented under the following rubrics--the emergence of the young negro, responses to the freedom thrust, reversing the spiral toward futility, overcoming the deficits in education, breaking the cycle of poverty, and outliving the stereotype. It is pointed out that following the 1954 supreme court school desegregation decision college age youth became impatient with the "go slow" attitudes of the older negro leadership of their parents' generation. As a result, the tempo of the thrust for equal rights increased, starting with a nonviolent approach which by 1964 was superseded by urban riots and conflict. In essence, it is felt that if the young negro continues fighting for full integration rather than veering toward separatism, the gains 20 years hence will be enormous. Available from association press, 291 broadway, new york, N.Y., 10007, 160 pages, for $3.95. (nh)

"A ninety-minute special which shares the intimate testimonies of eloquent men and women as they discuss their dramatic confrontations with the force of evil -- and to share the discovery that exploring evil leads to revelations about goodness. In the fall of 1987, some of America's most provocative and articulate thinkers gathered near Austin, Texas to consider the problem of evil. [Speakers] discuss the issue of evil in the 20th century, from its revelation in wars and the Holocaust, to the continuing manifestation of crime and other forms of human suffering. The special report includes the personal witness of people who have faced the question of evil in their own lives and in society around us, and thus brings a philosophical question of the existence of evil down to the level of ordinary affairs."--1988 Peabody Awards entry form excerpt. The program includes footage from the presentations by Maya Angelou, Philip Hallie, Chung-Liang Al Huang, Raul Hilberg and Dr. Samuel Proctor at a three-day symposium entitled Understanding evil, held at the Institute for the Humanities in Salado, Texas. In interviews interspersed throughout the program, the speakers and others attending the symposium discuss their personal experiences with evil and what they feel they have learned from the symposium

Reversing the Spiral Toward Futility by Samuel D Proctor( Book )

1 edition published in 1965 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Conditions that engender futility and hostility among negroes can be reversed by competent, dedicated teachers. Factors leading to negro attitudes of defeat are analyzed. Experience of rejection and awareness of being different and inferior are among the first realizations of the negro. From rejection grows fear of white institutions and of competition with white people. The fear crystallizes into hostility, which sometimes expresses itself in violence, but just as often leads to defeat, resignation, and a feeling of futility. To overcome the defeatism that prevents many negroes from trying to surmount obstacles in their environment, teachers should develop a sense of dedication, learn to establish empathy with and understand deprived minority children, and correct negro attitudes of rejection by fully accepting them. Acceptance does not come from desegregation alone, for changing habits of withdrawn suspicion and caution in all interracial contacts takes time. Before holding negro students responsible for achievement levels on a par with advantaged children, teachers should give them extra attention and remedial work and should neutralize the environment of their student world. Promising programs include a new institute of human relations at the university of wisconsin, an effort by a major foundation to strengthen negro college placement programs, and the commitment of church resources to play an active role. Teacher education programs, to be successful, should be based on a belief in the equality of of human beings
The substance of things hoped for : a memoir of African-American faith by Samuel D Proctor( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Honored by universities, ministries, and institutions nationwide, called into service in the administration of two presidents, Samuel Proctor has established himself as a preeminent theologian, orator, and educator in this country. In The Substance of Things Hoped For, he takes us on a personal journey that begins with his grandparents' slavery and ends with his vision of a full fruition of the African-American experience, and a celebration of the tie that holds African Americans together: simple, tenacious faith. Proctor eloquently shows how this faith - which began with the emancipated slaves' enduring desire to be free - is present today. He believes that this faith in justice, and in a genuine community where every person is an equal participant, still runs deep. It is stronger than consistent prejudice, deceptive racial stereotypes, and destructive polarization." "Proctor pragmatically outlines his vision of the path that will take us toward genuine community.
