Abstract

By the time this issue of MR reaches readers, it will be just a year since the Birmingham demonstrations and riots. Commenting on these events, we noted that the Negro liberation movement as then constituted had no meaningful program for dealing with the real problems of American Negroes—extreme poverty, ghettoization, unemployment—and that for this reason every apparent success it might achieve would only bring it closer to crisis.
