Title

Convictions About Racism in the United States of America

Description

In 1968 several individuals, including Horace Seldon, created Community Change Inc. (CCI). With its mission of working against racism and for racial justice, CCI has focused on institutional manifestations of white racism.

As founding director for CCI, Horace Seldon wrote a number of essays and articles on the many aspects of racism. Most of the essays, or commentaries, were written specifically for the CCI newsletter. In limiting almost all of the essays to 1-3 pages, the author acted on his assumption that people are more likely to read a brief article and to pass it on the others. The essays, therefore, are not intended to be comprehensive, but, instead, to start people thinking. Whether discussing the definition of racism as a “white problem,” or the language that is a symptom of racism, or the similarities between basketball and affirmative action, the essays demand attention to issues.

Bob Lake & Karen Schaefer have scanned & digitized these essays, making the Horace Seldon.com website possible. They have also created a document containing all essays in book form.
