Mr. E. Williams defined a leader as someone who advocates certain positions and is able to create a following to advance these positions. Historically, black leadership has been associated with the civil rights movement to allow African-American participation in the mainstream of American life. They said that white leadership is taken for granted or implicit, so the term leadership is more associated with minority groups because they have to create a role that is not assumed of their position. Mr. J. Williams said that the key African-American issues requiring leadership are poverty, education, and community support. close
