In 1987 a project was undertaken to assess the status of African Americans in the United States in the topical areas to be addressed by the National Research Council's Study Committee on the Status of Black Americans: education, employment, income and occupations, political participation and the administration of justice, social and cultural change, health status and medical care, and the family. Six volumes resulted from this study. This volume, the fifth, explores the health status of African Americans. For many health status indicators the rates are improving for blacks as well as whites. However, a racial gap still remains, and in some instances the gap has increased over the past decade of two. In a search for relevant factors associated with these trends, health issues are examined in the following chapters: (1) "Health Status and Sociodemographic Context"; (2) "Adverse Birth Outcomes: Infant Mortality, Low Birth Weight, and Maternal Deaths"; (3) "Cancer Incidence and Mortality among African-Americans"; (4) "Trends in Homicide among African-Americans"; (5) "Lead Poisoning: The Invisible Epidemic"; (6) "Current Plagues: Chemical Dependency and AIDS"; (7) "Sickel Cell Anemia"; (8) "Access to Medical Care"; (9) "Health Work Force Distribution"; and (10) "Cross-Cutting Issues in the Health of African-Americans." Medical care alone will not reduce the great disparities in health status between black and white Americans completely. To redress these inequities, other aspects of society must change, and it must be understood that disease is rooted in social structure. An appendix lists project study group members and contributors. Each chapter contains references. (Contains 1 figure and 64 tables.) (SLD)

Using the life of one African American family, headed by the Reverend Jack Graham, as a point of departure, this book provides a historical-cultural examination of the blend of African and American traditions among Black People in the area surrounding Meridian in east central Mississippi. Beginning with a brief history of Meridian, its character and make-up, the work focuses on the religious and social development of African Americans from the period just prior to the Civil War up through the turbulent period of the 1960s, and reflects on the current religio-social climate.

"Is black academic excellence a form of imitation of white values? Bill Cosby repudiates the equation. ALthough Bill Cosby's formulation of the issue could have been made less provocative, he was indeed raising an important issue. Has the achievement motive among African Americans been severely damaged by the history of enslavement and racism? How can African Americans now transcend those inhibitions?-- Foreword.
