Uncommon common ground; race and America's future, rev. ed.

Blackwell, Angela Glover et al.

W.W. Norton


288 pages




Blackwell (founder and CEO of PolicyLink, "a national research and action institute advancing economic and social equity"), Kwoh (executive director, Asian Pacific American Legal Center in Los Angeles), and Pastor (director, Program for Environmental and Regional Equity, U. of Southern California) revise and update their earlier work, Searching for the Uncommon Common Ground, which was the result of the work on racial issues explored in The American Assembly's multiyear project "Uniting America; Toward Common Purpose." They present data on changing racial demographics in the United States, racial disparities of income and economic opportunity, and various other social disparities such as in health or in imprisonment rates. They urge that the United States address these racial divides based on a principle of equity and consider programs and policies that can help achieve this goal.
