You might also be interested in African American Leadership: An Empowerment Tradition in Social Welfare History*, edited by Iris B. Carlton-LaNey.
For far too long, the huge contribution of African Americans to the social work profession has been relegated to little more than a footnote. Their stories have never been told. Until now. Sixteen painstakingly researched chapters, written by social workers, highlight the distinct roles of African American social work pioneers from the 1890s through the 1940s.
The book discusses the birth of social welfare activities, both informal and formal, and introduces founding members of organizations such as the National Urban League and the National Association of Colored Women. Written from a social work perspective and framed within a historical context, these profiles and their accompanying lessons help today’s practitioner make the connection to current issues.
