Everyday Racism in Black Mothers' Lives: Implications for Social Work

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This study explores some of the ways that African American mothers are impacted by everyday racism while parenting their children. It then examines ways that these experiences can inform maternal parenting practices and the understanding of parental obligations. The study aims to give Black mothers a voice (seldom heard) in the literature on racism and parenting, by directly consulting them about what they do and why they do it. The first author is a Black woman and the second author a White woman; both are mothers and social workers. Neither author challenges whether racism exists – both authors assume that it does. Therefore, the seven Black mothers in this study are asked to look at their choices and obligations as parents through the lens of “everyday racism” in hopes of increasing understanding about systemic racism and diversity among both clinical social workers and their macro level counterparts.
