Experiences and situations unique to black children and their parents are the focus of this comprehensive collection of current empirical research. The editors emphasize that `to be fully functional, (black children) must develop the skills to do well simultaneously in two different cultures, both black and non-black.′ The contributors explode many of the myths surrounding the development of black children, and confirm that despite the economic mobility of some blacks, most black children live in an environment that threatens their physical existence. They also show that much of the child development research and literature has viewed black children negatively.
