Description - The Ties That Bind by Joyce A. Ladner

African-American communities, youths, and adults alike are facing rapid changes that are rocking the foundations of their lives. Distilling wisdom for a new generation of black families, leading African-American sociologist Joyce Ladner explores the values that can help African American families through an era that is as tough in many ways as earlier, more notorious periods in black history. In 21 brief chapters, she chronicles the roots and relevance of specific, timeless African-American values and offers practical recommendations for renewing their meaning in today's families. It contains time-tested virtues drawn from the black experience and offers advice for helping children develop goals, self-respect, and decision-making skills. It features a wealth of traditional stories and models of personal courage.
