Description
While the population of African Americans in Washington, DC has been declining slowly in recent years, it still remains the majority ethnic group in the Nation's Capital. Yet one finds that European Americans now have a one-person majority over African Americans in the DC City Council, and men greatly outnumber women (the majority) in that political body. Moreover, while the mayor is an African American, none of his heads of the city's agencies is an African American. Gender and Ethnicity in Washington, DC is an anthology that examines the aspects that are related to ethnicity and gender in the city. This book reveals the perceptions of the city's residents regarding these aspects and illustrates why these perceptions are important.

The selections in Gender and Ethnicity in Washington, DC cover a variety a topics, including:

  • Recidivism
  • Health and Medical Care
  • Higher Education
  • Gentrification
  • Economic Well-Being
  • Demographic Shifts
  • Environmental Issues
  • Political Leadership
  • Marriage and Family
