This edited book provides a valuable, unique and scholarly contribution to the study of Black families (African and African Caribbean) in the UK. It combines a systematic yet clear-headed approach with up-to-date and well-researched data to support its many stimulating assertions. All fifteen contributors (including academics, arts practitioners and community activists) are of African or African Caribbean descent and approach their subject matter with a dedicated 'hands-on' feel. Their committed approach is supported by empirical research and comprehensive review of the literature. With chapters on social policy, education, music, sports, social exclusion, racism, religion and spirituality, this book will become the essential text about UK families of African/Caribbean descent for higher education students, professionals, practitioners and the general reader. It will also appeal to professional organisations working with Black individuals and families.
