Description 1 online resource
Summary Lockheed, Atlanta, and the struggle for racial integration tells the story of business/government equal employment opportunity policies by examining Georgia's Lockheed Aircraft, 1950-1990 ... This book connects the local story of workplace desegregation to national narratives of civil rights reform; affirmative action; the role of government and public/private partnerships; and the business reaction to both state intervention in employment generally in the late 70s/1980s and to the emergence of black political power in the same time frame
