John Jacob, president of the National Urban League, spoke at a luncheon of the American Planning Association, an organization concerned with urban and rural development issues. Mr. Jacob discussed the state of black America in 1992, including economic opportunity issues, racial tensions and the recent riots in Los Angeles. He said the National Urban League’s recent report on the state of black America found that the progress of black America has been stalled by recent policies discouraging economic opportunity for blacks.
