' In this trenchant and hard-hitting book, Whitney M. Young, Jr., the Executive Director of the National Urban League, strips away the myths and misunderstanding that cloud our view of America's racial problems, and provides an action program that could enable America to move beyond racism to an open society of justice and equality. He explains what government and the private sector must do to solve the racial crisis, and he shows how every individual can play an important role in building an open society"--Unedited summary from book jacket.
