I’m working on a social science writing question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
1) Talk about your self-described racial identity, using Cross’(1978)“ Five Stages of African American Identity”, and Boyd-Franklin’(2003) Black Families in Therapy: Understanding the African American Experience.
2) Interview a member of your family or community to provide additional first-hand insight about the community climate of the Civil Rights and Black Power Movement. What do they remember about the political climate at the national and/or local community level during this time period? How did the social policies, customs, or traditions impact their aspirations and interpretation of the family in community? In other words, what critical racial tenants impacted the functioning of families?
3) Examine gender roles and identity, as well as race and power dynamics. Discuss the social issues around employment, education, economics, politics, and the incidents of community unrest.
