The Black Progress Question Explaining the African American Predicament

by Stephen Burman

Part of the SAGE Series on Race and Ethnic Relations Series

The Black Progress Question Explaining the African American Predicament Synopsis

The recent Los Angeles race riots exposed the depth and persistence of the race problem in the United States and symbolized the despair and hopelessness felt in North America's cities. The key question remains: Are African-Americans making any progress towards integration into mainstream society? The Black Progress Question examines the popular responses to this issue and finds them insufficient. For too long, the analysis of black progress has been met with an unwarrented optimism. Stephen Burman presents an alternative approach, sobering in its realism, which will dispel beliefs that a solution to this problem is close at hand.
