Below is the uncorrected machine-read text of this chapter, intended to provide our own search engines and external engines with highly rich, chapter-representative searchable text of each book. Because it is UNCORRECTED material, please consider the following text as a useful but insufficient proxy for the authoritative book pages.

Appendix C Committee Activities The committee's work required frequent meetings. The main subtopics were given additional attention by five panels dealing, respectively, with education; employment, income, and occupations; health; political partici- pation and administration of criminal justice; and social and cultural conti- nuity and change. In addition to meetings of committee and panel members as a whole, each panel held separate meetings as needed. Some of these meetings included presentations and discussions with invited participants; we appreciate their contributions to the committee's work. The work of the committee and panels was also helped enormously by a set of commissioned papers. These papers are cited in the text of the report, but we also note here with thanks their contributions.

"[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.
