Beschreibung

Rethinking Black Motherhood and Drug Addictions: Counternarratives of Black Family Resilience offers a unique perspective on the complexities of being a Black mother addicted to crack, powder cocaine, heroin, and crank.



Autorentext

Tierra B. Tivis holds a PhD in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Her teaching and scholarship focuses on early childhood, early childhood special education, and Black families and resilience from a Black Feminist and Critical Race perspective.



Zusammenfassung
"Tierra B. Tivis' book takes us into the daily lives of Black women previously addicted to crack cocaine and heroin and provides a powerful analysis as to how controlling images reproduce their criminalization. By foregrounding Black women's voices, as well as historically and politically contextualizing them, Dr. Tivis reveals the realities of their resilience-and in the process, humanizes them. This book is both timely and important in disrupting how Black women have been dismissed, distorted, misunderstood, and essentially silenced." -Dalia Rodriguez, Associate Professor, Syracuse University
