Africentric Social Work
The first of its kind in Canada, this book provides an invaluable resource for students and practitioners alike by presenting a dynamic approach to African-centred service provision that is ethical and culturally relevant.
Racism and Anti-Racism in Canada
This introductory book was planned and written specifically as an introduction to racism and anti-racism. It is conspicuously activist and advocates anti-racism within the parameters of sound academic research. The authors do not see a contradiction between strong research and calls to action to create a non-racist society.
Race and Well-Being
The Lives, Hopes and Activism of African Canadians
Through in-depth qualitative and quantitative research with African Canadians in three Canadian cities – Calgary, Toronto and Halifax – this book explores how experiences of racism, combined with other social and economic factors, affect the health and well-being of African Canadians. With a special interest in how racial stereotyping impacts Black men and boys, this book shares stories of racism and violence and explores how experiences and interpretations of, and reactions to, racism differ across a range of social and economic variables. Rejecting the notion that Black communities are homogeneous, this book gives a detailed examination of three distinct communities: Caribbean, immigrant African and Canadian Black. The authors also explore how individuals, families and communities can better understand and challenge racism.
