KIRKUS REVIEW

A slight, haphazard collection of comments and recommendations by a group of ""name"" editors, publishers and reporters. They all agree that racial equality is good, violence is bad, and newsmen are in a bind because what they report can directly affect what happens next. A few significant points are raised (TV reaches Southern Negroes over the heads of the local press) and suggested (how much influence do sponsors and advertisers have on the slant of race-relations news?). The contributors have little to say about the Negro press and radio, or about their own approach to such newsworthy Negroes as Powell and Cassius Clay. Important topic, insipid book.
