New Paradigms and New Policies for the New American Reality

Call for Papers: Research on the Black community, 3 January 2001

At the dawn of the 21st Century, the black community is once again at the crossroads. Blacks in America in the mid-20th Century led a revolution that forever changed the structure of this society. Yet, in many ways the black community has benefitted least from this revolution. Whereas there has been considerable progress as a result of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s, blacks have yet to achieved full equality in America. In fact, on many indicators the argument can be made that blacks have actually lost ground. Racism is still a reality in America and blacks continue to bear the brunt of it. It is clear that past approaches to black community issues are insufficient to address present and future realities. Accordingly, this volume will highlight innovative and multi-disciplinary research with an emphasis on policy implications.

Topics for papers might include:

  • The Demographic Reality of Blacks becoming the Second Largest Minority within the first decades of the 21st Century.
  • The State of Marriage and Family in Contemporary Black America
  • Employment, Unemployment and Underemployment
  • The Black Community and the Continuing HIV/AIDS Crisis
  • Black Politics and Black Politicians
  • The Digital Divide: Blacks and the Technological Revolution
  • The Challenge of Black Leadership
  • The Cultural Divide: Two Generations of Blacks Since the Civil Rights Movement
  • The Role of the Black Community in the New Global Economy
