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

3 editions published between 1980 and 1982 in English and held by 5 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)

The strengths of Black families by Robert Bernard Hill( Book )

2 editions published between 1972 and 2003 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report identifies and analyzes five strengths of black families: adaptability roles, strong kinship bonds, strong work orientation, strong religious orientation, and achievement orientation. These five characteristics have been functional for the survival, advancement, and stability of black families. Most discussions of black families tend to focus on indicators of instability and weakness. This preoccupation with pathology in most research on black families has obscured some fruitful avenues of investigation. It is here contended that examining the strengths of black families can contribute as much towards understanding and ameliorating social problems as examining their weaknesses. If, as most scholars agree, there is a need to strengthen black families, then a first-order priority should be the identification of presently-existing strengths and resources. The National Urban League recognized this need three years ago when it issued a position statement on black families based on the work of Dr. Andrew Billingsley. Among the major findings from this report is that, contrary to the widespread belief in a "matriarchy" among blacks, most black families, whether low-income or not, are characterized by an equalitarian pattern in which neither spouse dominates, but shares decision-making and the performance of expected tasks.

Make it plain : standing up and speaking out by Vernon E Jordan( Book )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Black Americans have always relied on the oral tradition--storytelling, preaching, and speechmaking--to assert their rights and preserve and pass on their history and culture. In the pulpit, courtroom, or cotton field, they have understood the power of words, distinctively delivered, to educate and inspire. Vernon E. Jordan, Jr., one of the nation's finest speakers, imbibed this tradition as a young man and has given it his own unique inflection from his work on the civil rights front lines, to the National Urban League, to positions of influence at the highest level of business and politics. A friend and confidant to presidents, Jordan has never forgotten the men and women whose oratorical skill in service to social justice deeply influenced him. Their examples and voices, reflected in Vernon's own, make this book both a history and an embodiment of black speech at its finest.--From publisher description
The spirit of an activist : the life and work of I. Dequincey Newman by Sadye Louise Logan( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The Spirit of an Activist chronicles the life and distinguished career of Isaiah DeQuincey Newman (1911-1985), a Protestant pastor, civil rights leader, and South Carolina statesman. Known as a tenacious advocate for racial equality, Newman was also renowned for his diplomatic skills when working with opponents and his advocacy of nonviolent protest over confrontation. His leadership and dedication to peaceful change played an important role in the dismantling of segregation in South Carolina. The thirteen narratives in this volume by such diverse contributors as Richard W. Riley, William Saunders, Esther Nell Witherspoon, and Donald L. Fowler attest to Newman's impact on South Carolina. Editor Sadye L.M. Logan orchestrates these many contributions into an informative, moving, and sometimes passionate collage of Newman's challenges, triumphs, and small and significant everyday acts of courage
