Working With African American Males
A Guide to Practice



© 1999 | 408 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This volume examines special issues associated with providing services and guidance to African American men. Although this group of men is like any other in its struggle with its social and economic problems, African American men experience a higher rate of murder, imprisonment, unemployment and racism.
