Black fathers in contemporary American society : strengths, weaknesses, and strategies for change ( Book )
5 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The contributors to this volume argue that (black) fathers must be brought back into the picture, especially in a social context in which a huge absolute percentage of black families are single-parent, female-headed households and in which African Americans, especially young black men, face an alarmingly high lifetime probability of incarceration
An American dilemma revisited : race relations in a changing world by Obie Clayton ( Book )
7 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Fifty years after the publication of An American Dilemma, Gunnar Myrdal's epochal study of racism and black disadvantage, An American Dilemma Revisited confronts the pivotal issue of race in American society and explores how the status of African Americans has changed over the past half century. Using Myrdal as a benchmark, the contributors analyze historical developments, examine current conditions, and investigate strategies for positive change within the core arenas of modern societypolitical, economic, educational, and judicial." "The central question posed by this volume is whether the presence of a disproportionately African American "underclass" has become a permanent phenomenon. Several contributors tie the unevenness of black economic mobility to educational limitations, social isolation, and changing workplace demands. The evolution of a more suburban, service-dominated economy that favors advanced academic training has severely constrained the employment prospects of many urban African Americans with limited education. An American Dilemma Revisited argues that there is hope to be found in black educational institutions, black community enterprises, and the social activism of African Americans at the local level."--Jacket
