Overview

This voume offers new perspectives on the cultural, enconomic, and community cntexts of African American family life. Recognizing the diversity of contemporary African American families, leading experts from different disciplines present the latest knowledge on such topics as family formation, gender roles, childrearing, care of the elderly, and religious practices. Particular attention is given to how families draw on cultural resources to adapt to racial disparities in wealth, housing, education, and employment, and how culture, in turn, is shaped by these circumstances. Factors that promote or hinder healthy development are explored, as are research-based practices and policies fir supporting families' strengths.
