A Lifetime of Work: The Context and Meanings of Leisure for Aging Black Women.
Allen, Katherine R.; Chin-Sang, Victoria
Gerontologist, v30 n6 p734-40 Dec 1990
Conducted qualitative interviews with 30 African-American women to examine meanings of leisure within context of lifelong work histories. Respondents participated in unpaid agricultural work in childhood, paid work in domestic and service occupations as adults, and volunteer work as retirees. Women continued their history of self-reliance, incorporating lifetime of hard work into leisure experiences and service to others. (Author/NB)
