The State of Black America is the National Urban League’s seminal annual publication which has become one of the most highly anticipated benchmarks and sources for thought leadership around racial equality in America across economics, education, health social justice and civic engagement. Each edition contains thoughtful commentary and insightful analysis from leading figures and thought leaders in politics, the corporate arena, NGOs, academia and popular culture.
The State of Black America also includes the Equality Index™, a quantitative tool for tracking racial equality in America, now in its 11th edition of the Black-White Index and its sixth edition of the Hispanic-White Index.
The theme for the 39th edition of State of Black America, “Save our Cities: Education, Jobs + Justice” conveys the urgency of focus around each of these areas and their interconnectedness in the ongoing quest for full equality in America. Through thought-provoking articles and a stellar line-up of contributors, the 2015 State of Black America offers insightful solutions across critical areas including job creation, transportation, education, city revitalization, criminal justice, entrepreneurship and media images.
Established in 1910, the Urban League is the nation's oldest and largest community-based movement devoted to empowering African Americans to enter the economic and social mainstream.
