Africana history, culture and social policy: a collection of critical essays
International Scholars Publications, Dec 1, 1999 - Fiction - 405 pages
In this collection of compelling essays, scholars critically examine the history, culture, and social policies that surround the African Diaspora and explore how these have shaped the experiences of African-Americans today. The essays address a wide range of related topics that include historical perspectives on black clergy, the historical significance of black poetry and literature, the place of black studies in the academy, racism on campuses, and issues concerning social work. In seeking to promote dialogue between scholars of various disciplines, this volume fosters a non-hegemonic perspective that is critical for investigating and understanding contemporary African-American culture.
