National Urban League: Where We Are

Every year, the National Urban League issues a State of Black America report that gauges the progress of African-Americans in critical areas, such as education, employment and economics, as well as an equality index of the status of Blacks and whites in those areas. In the 2013 edition, released on April 10, the NUL also looked forward by taking a look back at how far African-Americans have come since 1963.
