9781433112003: Our Children – Our Responsibilities: Saving the Youth We Are Losing to Gangs (Black Studies and Critical Thinking)

Our Children – Our Responsibilities walks the reader through the social, psychological and theological dynamics and rationale for a step-by-step whole systems change model designed to address issues plaguing the African American community and youth gravitating to gang environments. Drawing upon an expansive audience of scholars and practitioners to support its propositions, the book moves away from talking about the problems to conveying a well designed multi-disciplinary and detailed change strategy. It challenges traditional beliefs, praxes and strategies that typically start with a focus on youth as the central point and boldly addresses the multitude of inter-related issues that plague the African American community. The model is expanded to a global context, which is a critical perspective since every continent has a gang problem and/or community-based issues that give rise to youth gravitating to gangs.

From the Author:

An excerpt from a recent review:

Book review by: John Winterdyk, Department of Justice Studies, Mount Royal University, Calgary, AB., Canada T3E 6K6

"In conclusion, this book offers a pure, genuine, and informed perspective on how we might begin to shift our focus from one of crime control to community capacity building and empowerment when dealing with young persons who 'get lost to gangs'. And while there are a number of innovative and 'successful' initiatives and programs being used today to address the gang problems in the United States (e.g., Ceasefire, Father Boyle, the court injunction program in Norwalk California, etc.), Easley's message challenges the reader to move beyond the banality of a conventional wisdom that leaves the problem of youth gangs in the hands of various criminal justice agencies and organizations, to embrace what the citizens of a society should be doing (and in fact used to do) - taking responsibility. The steps Easley prescribes, while almost self-evident, have not been widely embraced but as she argues, if her message resonates then it will take leaders who are truly committed to follow through and champion the cause".

"Finally, the book remains highly readable (if a bit repetitive in places), richly engaging, and robust enough to encompass academic and practical appeal. If read with an open mind, one can intuitively feel Easley's sincere commitment to embrace a model which, like restorative justice, attempts to address and resolve 'conflict' through focusing on what can be. This is perhaps best summarized in her final sentence: "Never give up on a child!""
