Regression to racism

Biographical/Historical abstract:

Additional contributor:


The August 17, 1989 editorial from the Greensboro News & Record concerns a National Research Council report entitled A Common Destiny: Blacks and American Society which found that the progress of the civil rights movement had fallen off since 1970, particularly during the Reagan years.

This article was clipped and saved in a scrapbook on race relations by Clarence “Curly” Harris, manager of the Greensboro Woolworth store at the time of the 1960 sit-ins that spawned lunch counter sit-ins across the South and rejuvenated the civil rights movement.
