About this title


Written in the African tradition of collaboration, Social Work and the Black Experience is the first book to incorporate the rich black spiritual and blues traditions for use in work with black individuals and families. The authors build on three concepts: moaning - black pain and grief; mourning - a collective effort to overcome grief; and morning - a new beginning. Students, faculty, and practitioners will find this an extraordinarily moving and useful reference. Special Features * Portrays the experiences of pioneer black social workers in the early 1940s * Focuses on the helping traditions of black people during the 'Great Migration'
