9780231162609: The Black Power Movement and American Social Work

The Black Power movement has often been portrayed in history and popular culture as the quintessential "bad boy" of modern black movement-making in America. Yet this impression misses the full extent of Black Power's contributions to U.S. society, especially in regard to black professionals in social work.

Relying on extensive archival research and oral history interviews, Joyce M. Bell follows two groups of black social workers in the 1960s and 1970s as they mobilized Black Power ideas, strategies, and tactics to change their national professional associations. Comparing black dissenters within the National Federation of Settlements (NFS), who fought for concessions from within their organization, and those within the National Conference on Social Welfare (NCSW), who ultimately adopted a separatist strategy, she shows how the Black Power influence was central to the creation and rise of black professional associations. She also provides a nuanced approach to studying race-based movements and offers a framework for understanding the role of social movements in shaping the non-state organizations of civil society.

About the Author:

Joyce M. Bell is assistant professor of sociology at the University of Pittsburgh. She received her Ph.D. in sociology from the University of Minnesota, and her work is in the area of race and social movements.

Review:

In a pathbreaking analysis, Joyce M. Bell shows again how black Americans have been this society's most important driving force for social justice. By analyzing the role of a key player in the understudied Black Power movement, the National Association of Black Social Workers, Bell illustrates that movement's brilliant antiracist strategies and transforming impacts in separate black organizations and within historically white organizations. (Joe R. Feagin, Texas A&M University)

Bell has added considerable depth and detailed analysis on the development of Black professional associations by filling a research gap in the existing literature concerning the institutionalization of the Black liberation movement during the age of Black Power. (Journal of Social Work Values and Ethics)

Historians wishing to explore black power's deeper nuances will find this sociological study of "intra-organizational social movements" a good entry point. (Journal of American History)

This study is a rich resource on both the development of Black professional organizations, as well as the influence of social movements in American society. (Wilma Peebles-Wilkins Journal of Sociology & Social Work)
