Overview

The lives of Black girls have far too frequently been used to support assertions regarding their alleged deviance and pathology. These claims have public policy implications, as they have served to ignite firestorms of debate and criticism that have ultimately resulted in harsh welfare reform and other such blame-the-victim policy initiatives. This book clarifies that today's Black girls are not receiving equitable learning opportunities in school.

Talkin' Back offers readers specific strategies that are designed to enhance the efforts of parents and communities, as they work in partnership with schools, raising Black girls who are prepared to wisely confront societal and educational challenges.
