Black enlisted participation in the Army is assessed through a presentation of trend data showing the distribution of blacks across the rank structure, and the assignment of blacks by military occupational specialities. The discussion analyzes the growing proportion of blacks in the Army following the advent of the all-volunteer force. The unequal distribution of blacks across ranks decreases over time but remains noticeable into the present. Blacks are underrepresented in technical occupations even when mental group level is controlled.
