In San Francisco, such a lot African americans have been successfully barred from renting or procuring houses in all yet a number of neighborhoods and, with the exception of the well-educated and fortunate, employment possibilities have been open in near-entry degrees for white-collar positions or in unskilled and semi-skilled blue-collar positions. As San Francisco's African American inhabitants multiplied, civil rights teams shaped coalitions to wood and protest, thereby successfully increasing task possibilities and establishing the housing marketplace for African American San Franciscans. This publication describes and explains a number of the stumbling blocks and triumphs confronted and accomplished in parts corresponding to housing, employment, schooling and civil rights.
