ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

I want to acknowledge and thank several individuals for their assistance in the development and completion of this study. In 1991, Rukiah AbdulMalik spent many hot and uncomfortable summer hours in various libraries collecting information for this work. Ilene Carver assisted this project by editing an early draft of the study. The following staff of the Trotter Institute of the University of Massachusetts were very helpful in assisting me to meet various deadlines: Muriel Ridley, Eva Hendricks, and especially Gemima Remy. Ms. Remy provided important editorial assistance throughout the project. She typed, and retyped, several drafts and also pointed out to me errors in the organization of the study. Special and great appreciation by the author is also extended to members of the faculty and staff of Boston University who in 1991 helped to initiate and plan this study. My fellow members of the Boston University team included Professor Melvin Delgado, Ms. Sherdena Cofield, and Ms. JoAnn Edinburg.

The many discussions of the Boston Foundation's Strategy Development Group helped me realize the importance of completing this study in a timely manner. The director of the Persistent Poverty Project at the Boston Foundation, Charlotte Kahn, and her staff, including Ellen Steese and Nancy Roob, were very supportive in guiding this report in its initial stages. Also, Charlotte Kahn and Jenifer Snow's early editing improved significantly the organization and flow of the book. Dr. Leticia RiveraTorres was retained by the Trotter Institute to edit early drafts and to make suggestions regarding the germane literature. Her insightful eye was crucial to strengthening the arguments presented here. Paul Wright, editor of the University of Massachusetts Press, was also helpful in suggesting the organization of this book. Tobie Weiner, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, also helped significantly with editing and typing. Suzanne Baker helped to guide the production of the book in its final stages.

I would also like to thank Martin Kilson, Bette Woody, Jemadari Kamara, Estela M. Carrion, Charles Diggs, Fred Johnson, Reinaldo Rivera, Clinton Jean, and many others for all of the conversations and discussions we had on various aspects of this study. My great and deep appreciation is extended to all of these individuals. And finally, both the Boston Foundation's Persistent Poverty Project and the William Monroe Trotter Institute at the University of Massachusetts at Boston must be thanked for financial support towards initiating and completing this study.
