2013 Black History Month Celebration!

2013 Black History Month Celebration!

We are pleased to publish professional profiles of
African American social workers who are following in the
footsteps of social work pioneer, Whitney M. Young, Jr.
Below are stories from social workers of color working
in a variety of settings – from those who have
established their own for-profit or a non-profit business,
to those thriving in academia, to social workers serving
our military service personnel and their families
in the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and more.
We hope you will  enjoy learning about their experiences
and how they have  enhanced the profession of social work.

Mr. Whitney M. Young, Jr.
