" A] collection of scholars has] released a monumental study called
A Common Destiny: Blacks and American Society. It offers detailed
evidence of the progress our nation has made in the past 50 years
in living up to American ideals. But the study makes clear that our
work is far from over." --President Bush "Remarks by the president
to the National Urban League Conference"
The product of a four-year, intensive study by distinguished
experts, A Common Destiny presents a clear, readable "big picture"
of blacks' position in America. Drawing on historical perspectives
and a vast amount of data, the book examines the past 50 years of
change and continuity in the status of black Americans. By studying
and comparing black and white age cohorts, this volume charts the
status of blacks in areas such as education, housing, employment,
political participation and family life.
