Overview

Reconceptualizing the Strengths and Common Heritage of Black Families: Practice, Research, and Policy Issues by Edith M. Freeman, Sadye Louise Logan

American scholars of social work analyze and critique the existing research literature on black families, children, and communities; and the effects of that literature on the status of this population today. They also present new frameworks for practice and research, and culturally sensitive guidelines for rebuilding and increasing both individual and collective sufficiency within this heterogeneous group. Their approach diverges from the pathology focus of much earlier research by emphasizing the resourcefulness and natural resilience of African American families.
