One America In The 21st Century: Promising Practices for Racial
Reconciliation is a reference guide of race-based programs. Promising
Practices are defined as efforts or programs intended to increase awareness of
racial issues; improve the lives of individuals who are affected by past and
present discrimination, or eliminate racial prejudice and discrimination from
societal institutions such as workplaces, schools and retail institutions.
These programs demonstrate what leaders at all levels of public and private
life can do when they commit themselves to finding the common good across
racial lines. Although this publication highlights only a fraction of the
community efforts working towards improving race relations, they serve as
examples of effective programs contributing to this country's on-going dialogue
on racial reconciliation.
