This is the story of Black social workers breaking barriers and fighting for change, for themselves as professionals and for their clients and communities. Seventeen women tell their own unique accounts, from gaining entry to social work education to their experiences in the field. They also write about the strategies that made a difference in their lives and the lives of the people they work with.
