"The Decent Society: Race Relations" by John V. Lindsay

Title

"The Decent Society: Race Relations" by John V. Lindsay

Description

"The Decent Society" was a collection of eleven essays on different aspects of American life. The pieces were written five years after President Johnson’s 1964 promise of the Great Society. Each tackles a different problem that was still plaguing the nation such as “Equality & Opportunity” or “Science & Technology.” The New York City Mayor John V. Lindsay wrote “Race Relations.” Using examples from his home in New York, Lindsay points out that poverty, ghettos, and unemployment help to keep all minorities from advancing and that the government should take a more active approach for dealing with these problems.
