Barriers to Rebuilding the African American Community

Understanding the Issues Facing Today’s African Americans from a Social Work Perspective

Tywan Ajani

Barriers to Rebuilding the African American Community explores the major threats and roots affecting both America’s most racially polarized periods as well as the major issues plaguing the African American community. The author provides intelligent insight into the deeper roots of America’s long history and struggle with racism as well as the solution. The author shows how a background investigation of medical science, culture, and social policy can propel or subdue an entire people group, and examines research on A.C.E.S. (Adverse Childhood Experiences), which affects all communities regardless of race. This book is an exciting and well-researched exposeì into one of America’s most electrifying socio-political movements.

Acknowledgments

Extract



I want to carefully acknowledge my amazing wife K. Ajani. She is a wonderful wife, mother, educator, and scholar. She diligently supported me in this project. Her labor is greatly appreciated. I tremendously love and thank her. I want to also acknowledge the eminent Jesus of Nazareth; not as a religious figure but rather as a social worker and civil rights activist. He was one of the first and premier leaders of the ancient world to love, serve, and validate the equality of women and to care for the civil liberties of the poor. Jesus cared about the Samaritan people who were both considered and mistreated as the African Americans of his day. His leadership and selfless service was countercultural and is worth further examination.
