African American Community, Syracuse, Race relations
Education | Social and Behavioral Sciences
One of the high functions of social science scholarship is to provide factual and soundly analytical basis for intelligent social action. As Syracuse and Onondaga County continue to work at the resolution of racial conflicts over the months and years ahead, men of good will shall need as accurate and as unemotional a portrait as possible of the basic dimensions of the race problem in this area. With this in mind, a number of scholars, mostly from the Maxwell Graduate School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University, but including representatives from the College of Business and the College of Law, came together in late 1963 to volunteer time and energy in the preparation of an objective report of the Negro situation in the Syracuse area. - Preface
