Oral Histories of Contemporary African American Social Work Pioneers
Bent-Goodley, Tricia B.
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, v26 n1-2 p181-199 Sep 2006
Contemporary African American social work pioneers are important sources of information; yet, knowledge about these scholars is not readily available and their perspectives have not been uncovered. This manuscript reports on four life story interviews conducted with such pioneers in an effort to profile them and share their collective recommendations to strengthen social work education. The result was five themes identified to enhance social work education, and documentation as to how to conduct life story interviews with other living social work pioneers.
