    Pathways to Resiliency: Black and Latino Families in America is a collection of articles and essays that highlights the experiences of Black and Latino families in the United States. The seven chapter anthology features works of diverse perspectives and outstanding scholarship in the areas of history and acculturation, racism and inequality, education, family and relationships, religion and spirituality, public health issues and practice, and social problems and policy.

    The material gives readers a deeper understanding of the origins, nature, and extent of these resilient families while exploring the issues that impact them.

    Pathways to Resiliency: Black and Latino Families in America is an impressive collection of readings. The book clearly demonstrates the family is not a monolithic entity. Rather, the book presents the family as a complex institution influenced by political, historical, cultural, and economic forces. With a variety of theoretical perspectives and empirical studies, the book takes an in-depth look at challenges and constraints faced by families in a time of deepening inequalities. This book investigates critical terrain such as education, religion, mass media, interpersonal relationships, health care, neighborhood violence, and more. In the face of significant challenges, we see how Black and Latino families effectively draw on various resources and continue to show resiliency and optimism.
