willing to speak on the panel. They
failed to find a speaker because of the

"But the time factor was bad,"

Organization of Women.

Wilson said the letter had nothing
to do with the cancelling of the pro-
gram. She said the committee was
still trying to put the forum together
the night before the event.
"At 8:00 o'clock, the night be-
fore the program, a subcommittee of
students on their own was attempt-
ing to put together a program that
would represent the entire Univer-
sity," she said.
"A committee of adults and stu-
dents were charged with representing
the entire campus, and they weren't
able to do it," Wilson said. "I could
not represent their effort as some-
thing the University could support."

For fifty years, Blacks have
seen both the high and low sides in
their attempts to gain economic and
social equality. These were some of
the conclusions of 15 prominent re-
searchers on the status of Black
Americans between 1940 and 1987.
Five of the researchers presented
their results last night during a panel
discussion at the Rackham Graduate
In a packed conference room,
three University professors, a Uni-
versity of Wisconsin sociology pro-
fessor, and Dolores Parron, of the
U.S. Department of Health and Hu-
man Services, each offered interpreta-
tions on the findings of a recently
published 600 page report, A Com-
mon Destiny: Blacks and American
According to the report, Blacks
were better off economically in the
40s and 60s, but since 1974, "the
economic status of Blacks relative to
whites has, on average, stagnated or
Psychology Prof. James Jackson,
one of the authors of the report and
moderator of the discussion, outlined-
the general findings of the report. He
said political and social activism of
Blacks has led to an enhanced legal
status for Blacks. But, he added, a
resistance to social change by whites
and the broader changes in the U.S.
economy since 1974 have prevented
Blacks from achieving full equality
Professor Jackson called the pe-
riod between 1974 and 1990 a
"retrogression" in the economic sta-
tus of Blacks, explaining that a
"substantial majority" of Blacks re-

trends of poverty. He said one third
of all Blacks today are below the
poverty level of $12,000 with 11
percent for whites.
Lawrence Bobo, professor of so-
ciology at the University of Wiscon-
sin, agreed, adding racial discrimina-
tion as the primary cause of this dis-
parity. While both Blacks and whites
speak of the "broad goal of achieving
an integrated society," he said,
whites possess a "non-trivial sensi-
tivity" toward integration and "fault
Blacks for the problems" of inequal-
ity. Bobo said there are differing and
often opposing views between
Blacks and whites on the definitions
of equality and the reasons for a still
largely segregated society. But he
cited the various forms of racial dis-
crimination by whites as the chief
problem, saying that "no other so-
cial factor is more important" in the
history of Black-Americans.
