This is a reprint from the Journal of Negro Education in the Summer of 1965. It discusses the "intervening decade" of 1954 to 1964 as a decade of hope and promise for "Negro Americans" as well as one of frustration. It covers topics of tokenism, structural resistance, residential segregation, protests, school desegregation, voting, housing, violence, and evasion in public accomodations.
