Discrimination The struggle for social and economic equality of Black people in America has been long and slow. It is sometimes amazing that any progress has been made in the racial equality arena at all; every tentative step forward seems to be diluted by losses elsewhere.

Throughout the struggle for equal rights, there have been courageous Black leaders at the forefront of...
