Summary
"Black Youth Rising examines how toxic social conditions outside of schools, in neighborhoods, cities, and society have threatened black youth's capacity to dream, hope, organize, and act. In this break-through book, Shawn Ginwright presents an alternative framework for understanding today's black youth. Resulting from his work with young people in a community based organization in Oakland, California, Ginwright formulated a process called "radical healing." As a result of radical-healing practices, African American youth learned to connect their racial identity to broader social and political issues which ultimately contributed to academic achievement, innovative forms of civic engagement, and overall well being." "Combining a theoretically grounded framework with practical strategies, Black Youth Rising offers a new model for understanding what African American youth need in order to succeed in school and in life. This book is essential reading for educators, social workers, community organizers, after-school coordinators, and all who work with inner-city adolescents."--BOOK JACKET
