Ethel Robinson has written an amazing book. As she wisely argues, despite a rapidly growing middleand upper class, popular media and public debates continue to view African-American families froma deficit perspective. Portrayals of African-American families in newspapers, television, andcontemporary scholarship tend to focus on single-parent households, low parental expectations, andlack of family involvement in schooling. The families you will meet in this book contradict thesestereotypes. In carefully crafted vignettes, Dr. Robinson and paints an alternative portrait of life inAfrican-American households. In this marvelous book, you will see eight intact families intimatelyinvolved in the academic and social lives of their children. Some volunteer in their children'sclassrooms; others serve as devoted tutors and mentors; still others are active advocates, arguingpassionately for school services; all hold fast to the hope that their children will achieve their piece of the American dream. This book is apowerful antidote to the negative portrayals of African-American families that abound in mainstream media. It is a "must-read" forresearchers, educators, and all who wish to look beyond and beneath the stereotypes of African-American family life.
