Abstract

As we leap into the 21st century, we carry forward the legacy of a century that saw this nation struggle with creating a consciousness surrounding issues of race and ethnicity. In this past century, a process that began with an awareness of the differences, similarities, and nuances of being an ethnic minority and an ethnic majority member in this country progressed to the development of programs to address disparities.
