    Paperback Description:

    At the height of the Civil Rights and Black Power Movements, Black social workers, frustrated by the slow pace of social action and social change in America, organized a national movement of Black social activists willing to confront racism in America and the day-to-day injustices experienced by members of the Black community. Progressive, militant and unapologetic for their persistent dedication and commitment to addressing the pressing social needs of Black America, this book tells the story of the people and their mission to bring about change in America.
