The social status and treatment of Blacks in the post-Civil Rights and Black Power eras are important in determining successes and shortcomings. Certain statistics including levels of poverty, housing, income level, social mobility, educational attainment, and jobs in deciding on the progress of Blacks. The views of scholars and activists are incorporated in the criteria used to gauge the successes and shortcomings faced by Blacks from the 1950s–2010s. Additionally, in the twenty-first century, the presence of Blacks in politics, recent killings of Afro-Americans by police, the formation of groups as Black Lives Matter and high levels of murders in the Caribbean would be considered in determining the extent of progress among Blacks and transformation of the United States and Caribbean societies.
