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

3 editions published between 1980 and 1982 in English and held by 4 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 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
