The Voting Rights Act and Black electoral participation by Kenneth Thompson( Book )

5 editions published between 1982 and 1984 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An analysis of Census Bureau data on registration and voting by black citizens over the past two decades shows the positive influence of the 1965 Voting Rights Act on electoral participation. After the passage of the act, there was more than a 50% increase in the number of black registered voters. Of black and white citizens participating in the last five presidential elections, southern blacks are the only group to report a net gain in level of participation between 1964 and 1980. There has also been a tenfold increase in the number of blacks elected as officeholders. However, this does not mean that blacks have achieved equal access to elective office. For example, it is difficult for black voters to elect officials from their communities. Data from the Justice Department's Voting Rights Division shows that a pattern of white resistance to blacks exercising their voting rights still remains strong in the South. Impediments, such as vote dilution issues, will remain salient in coming years. In the future, the consequences of the adoption by Congress of either a "result" or an "intent" test in cases brought under section 2 of the act will have an impact on the equal access of minorities to political participation.

Public school desegregation in the United States, 1968-1980 by Gary Orfield( Book )

2 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a partly quantitative, partly qualitative analysis of public school desegregation in the United States from 1968 to 1980. It is based on racial data (collected for the House Subcommittee on Civil and Constitutional Rights) released for the first time in this work. Chapter 1, "Regional Trends in School Desegregation," focuses on changes since 1968, first for Black students and then for Hispanic students. The Northeast, it is reported, was the only region in which segregation of Black students increased; in 1980, it had the highest level of any region while in all other regions segregation of Blacks decreased. In contrast, the book reveals, segregation for Hispanics rose sharply in the seventies. Chapter 2, "The Cities and School Segregation," discusses the special situation of large cities: in almost all large metropolitan areas, White enrollment is reported as having declined as Black and Hispanic enrollment increased. Desegregation efforts reportedly were most successful where a metropolitan approach--involving suburbs and central city--was employed. Chapter 3, "Metropolitan Desegregation Patterns," examines metropolitan areas for which areawide data are available. The effects of desegregation plans are considered for the two regions that are best documented, the Southern and Western states. It is found that, unlike in the South, desegregation orders are far from universal in the West, even within central cities. Chapter 4 draws conclusions and makes recommendations regarding policies for data collection and school and housing desegregation. Appended are data indicating school segregation by State (1980), percentage of White and Black enrollment in the nation's largest school districts (1968-80), and technical notes. (Kh)

Black initiative and governmental responsibility : a policy framework for racial justice by Joint Center for Political Studies (U.S.)( Book )

3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pervasive and persistent poverty has eroded but not destroyed the strong, deep, value framework that for so long sustained black people. These values--among them, family, education, and hard work--are so deeply held that they remain and can be explicitly tapped today. The black value system, together with the variety of historic and existing self-initiated activities for self-help and advancement can be the basis for a newly energized and expanded effort from within the black community to tackle a new variety of problems. But the disparities would never have arisen at all if official and societal discrimination had not denied blacks earlier access to equality and to opportunity. They can be eradicated only if the government comes to the assistance of a community in crisis. (Aa)
The Black vote : election '76 by Joint Center for Political Studies (U.S.)( Book )

3 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research on black political behavior in the 1976 congressional and presidential elections is presented. The purpose of the report is to present facts and figures which describe the impact of the black vote in the election of Jimmy Carter and of numerous congressional and gubernatorial candidates. Twenty three states were involved in an examination of the voting behavior of approximately 23% of the estimated total registered black voters. Election results were gathered directly from Boards of Election. Earlier research had identified the most heavily black congressional districts, counties, and municipalities. Major findings include: approximately 64% of the registered black voters voted; black voter turnout was higher in the North and West than in the South; Carter received 90% of all black votes. In 13 of the states monitored, black votes for Carter exceeded his margin of victory. The implications of the findings are that black voters can have a significant impact on an election. Tables summarize the findings. (Author/JK)
