Blacks still face challenges in economic equality

Print | Front Page | Email this story

WASHINGTON (AP) — The National Urban League says African-Americans are making tremendous gains in education, but have seen little change in economic equality in the last 50 years.

In its annual State of Black America report, the civil rights group said unemployment remains the biggest barrier. The report was released Wednesday during the Urban League's annual legislative conference in Washington.

According to the report, only 15 percent of black adults today did not complete a high school education, compared with 75 percent of black adults 50 years ago. At the college level, there are now 3.5 times more blacks aged 18-24 enrolled, and five times as many black adults who hold a college degree.
