Report of the National Advisory Commission on Civil Disorders
The Kerner Report was released after seven months of investigation by the National Advisory Commission on Civil Disorders and took its name from the commission chairman, Illinois Governor Otto Kerner. President Lyndon B. Johnson appointed the commission on July 28, 1967, while rioting was still underway in Detroit, Michigan. Johnson charged the commission with analyzing the specific causes urban riots that plagued many major cities beginning in the mid 1960s, the deeper reasons of the worsening racial climate of the time, and potential remedies. The commission presented its findings in 1968, concluding that urban violence reflected the profound frustration of inner-city blacks and that racism was deeply embedded in American society. The report's most famous passage warned that the United States was "moving toward two societies, one black, one white ó separate and unequal."
