Product Description


"By instituting what they introduce as the Africana Cultures and Policy Studies paradigm, these policy-oriented scholars make the novel yet common sense claim that the histories and experiences of those subject to policy decisions should serve as the foundation for policy making, analysis, and implementation. In the very moment that the US has the historic potential to chart a new course in domestic and foreign relations, Williams and his associates make clear: the very 'wretched of the earth' that public policy set out to save may in fact save us all!"--Davarian L. Baldwin, Author of "Chicago""'s New Negroes: Modernity, the Great Migration, and Black Urban Life"

"This insightful book provides a paradigm for effectively making and implementing policy to improve the quality of life among disadvantaged Africana peoples. It inspires discourse across disciplines - intersecting studies in Africana history, culture and policy - and among community leaders, historians and policymakers."--Lillian Ashcraft-Eason, Professor of History, Bowling Green State University

"This collection provides a profoundly important contribution to the fields of Africana Studies, history, and public policy because it challenges scholars and activists to consider the ways in which historical and interdisciplinary research can contribute to broader discussions about race, culture, and the development of domestic and international policy. While most historical studies tend to avoid issues of policy and practical application, these essays boldly apply scholarly inquiry and historical research to public policy and offer important insights about how scholarly analysis can create meaningful transformation in theBlack community and throughout the world." --Leslie M. Alexander, Associate Professor of History, The Ohio State University
