African-American Women's Health and Social Issues


A contributed book written by African-American women--scholars, professionals, and administrators--working with the problems that plague their communities. These women, tired of reading about themselves from nonblack and male perspectives, have confronted the problems of health concerns, substance abuse, homelessness, transracial adoption, and other social and health issues from their unique viewpoints.
