"This book is a very welcome update of Bandana Ahmad's classic 1990 text on black perspectives in social work. Race equality is now policy throughout government, but Mekada Graham draws together the evidence on persistent inequalities that affect the daily lives of black and minority ethnic individuals and communities. It is essential reading for a profession committed to social justice and to the continuing struggle for race equality." Daphne Statham, Independent Consultant, former director of the
"This book challenges many of the underlying assumptions of the social work profession and institutional response to need. It addresses the lack of responsiveness to the experiences of Blacks and highlights the tendency of systems of care to provide cookie cutter approaches to expressed need, putting the issue of race front and centre in the provision of goods and services. A must read." E. Jane Middleton, Chair, Dept of Social Work Education, California State University, Fresno
"Mekada Graham's work is clearly monumental, placing black people's experiences, values and worldviews as the foci for creating innovative methods of social work practice at both the micro and macro levels of intervention. This approach gives social work a wider and deeper arsenal to advance its official agenda of positive human transformation for all." Professor Jerome Schiele, Morgan State University
