"Find a Way or Make One: A Documentary History of Clark Atlanta University Whitney M. Young Jr. School of Social Work (1920-2020)" by Alma J. Carten offers an illuminating exploration of a century-long journey of the first accredited social work program at a historically black college and university. Celebrating its 100th anniversary, the book chronicles the school's inception amidst the harsh realities of racial segregation, highlighting its pioneering role in shaping social work education tailored to the unique challenges of African American communities. Carten deftly weaves the narratives of iconic leaders like W.E.B. DuBois and Whitney M. Young Jr., who influenced the school's academic and cultural evolution, advocating for an education that integrates Afrocentric perspectives and humanistic values. This thoughtful examination not only sheds light on the contributions of HBCU social work programs but also prompts critical reflection on the broader implications of racial justice and education equity. Published on October 1, 2020, this book is a vital resource for those in adult education and anyone committed to social justice in educational contexts.
