Overview

The Ties That Bind: Timeless Values for African American Families by Joyce A. Ladner

A treasury of time-tested virtues that will be a source of inspiration and moral guidance for today's families.
Reclaiming traditional family values has become an urgent theme in the African American community. In this affirming and instructive guide, a leading African American sociologist and nationally recognized com-mentator distills the wisdom of past generations into compelling lessons for contemporary families. Drawing on her own family stories from a tradition-rich Mississippi childhood, she brings profound insight to the challenge of raising strong children in ambivalent times. Along with practical recommendations and original activities designed to help all children develop courage, responsibility, and self-respect, Dr. Ladner offers abundant reasons to rejoice in renewing family ties.
