Abstract

The United States South is today the focal point of three key currents in American life: (1) The Negro liberation struggle, involving a drive for legal rights and socio-economic gains. (2) A rapidly changing economy, marked by increasing mechanization and automation. (3) Attempts to deal with these problems by federal legislation, as exemplified by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, establishing a new Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. (This Commission started operating on July 2 under the chairmanship of Franklin D. Roosevelt, Jr.)
