How significant was the economic progress of African Americans in the United States between 1970 and 2000? In this paper the authors examine this issue for Black men 25 to 55 years of age who live in 14 large United States metropolitan areas. They present evidence that significant racial disparities remain in education and labor market outcomes of Black and White men, and they discuss changes in industrial composition, migration, and demography that might have contributed to the stagnation of economic progress of Black men between 1970 and 2000.
