Following Penn State’s 2022 National Symposium on Family Issues, Springer published the latest installment in the symposium book series, "Family Socialization, Race, and Inequality in the United States”.
Dawn Witherspoon, professor of psychology, Susan McHale, distinguished emeritus professor of human development and family studies and demography, and Valarie King, emeritus professor of sociology, demography, and human development and family studies, all of Penn State, collaborated on editing this volume of the series.
Based on the presentations from the symposium, this book explores how families can address racial and ethnic inequalities, confronting racism and examining its impact on health, education, and overall family well-being. Additionally, it illuminates structural racism, challenges misconceptions about racial progress, and delves into the complexities of race and racism in family research.
This edition is available in hardcover and softcover or can be downloaded as a PDF or EPUB from Springer and is available at Penn State University Libraries.
