1. Gray, Kareema Jamilya. An examination of late 19th century African American social welfare pioneering developments in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Degree: PhD, Social Work, 2009, University of Georgia

The study of social welfare pioneers in social work education is important in forming a foundation of understanding the origins of the profession for future social work practitioners and educators. Understanding our past determines actively our ability to understand our present. Social work as a profession directly impacts and influences the lives of people of all different racial, ethnic, religious and cultural backgrounds; however, the social work pioneers that current social work education focuses on are predominantly White, Christian, and American. Research to date has started to focus on uncovering pioneering work that was conducted in some minority communities, but there are still large gaps in the literature that this study hopes to fill. This study examined the work that late 19th century African American social welfare pioneers were doing in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The goal was to bring to light the fact that social work was in fact being done by more than just White, Christian men and women during the time period that social work was becoming a profession. The purpose of this study was to describe, critique, and discuss the roles assumed by African American social change agents during the Progressive Era in the late 19th century in the struggle for social rights, human rights, social and humanitarian service delivery for freed slaves and Blacks in Philadelphia, PA. There were four research questions directing this study: (a) what roles did late 19th century African American social change agents play in the struggle for social rights, human rights, and service delivery for freed slave and Blacks in Philadelphia, PA.? (b) what were the social service delivery systems that were developed and used by the early African American social welfare pioneers in Philadelphia, PA? (c) did these initiatives have any correspondence or parallels with other movements during this period? and (d) what, if any, cross racial alliances were negotiated and what bridges if any were built between Black and White reformers? This historical qualitative study utilized an approach from the social change theoretical base and included in-depth and extensive examination of documents and artifacts from social welfare change agents in Philadelphia, PA. The sample included documents and artifacts that had been previously categorized as being from African American men, women and organizations that were advocates for social change during the late 19th century. Analysis led to the conclusion that the work that was done in the Black community was just as important and relevant to social work as a profession as the work that was being done in the White community. This work deserves to be discussed and examined just as much as the work that currently dominates social work education. Recommendations for refinements of the analysis, implications on social work education, future evaluation and research are discussed. Advisors/Committee Members: June Hopps.

2. Rollins, Latrice Sheree. An exploration of the experiences of African American women who provide direct services to African American nonresidential fathers.

Degree: PhD, Social Work, 2010, University of Georgia

African American nonresidential fathers are amongst the most underserved populations of individuals in need of services. Since the majority of social service staff are women and programs are typically directed towards mothers, there is limited guidance in the literature on how professional female social service providers engage fathers and create therapeutic helping relationships with African American nonresidential fathers. There also needs to be more attention in the social work literature to issues of gender, race, socioeconomic status and other issues of power that impact helping relationships. Specifically, there is a gap in the literature regarding professional relationships between African American female professionals and African American male clients. This study addresses this gap in part by exploring how African American women who provide direct services to African American nonresidential fathers (fatherhood service providers) engage this population in services and overcome the various issues of power that impact helping relationships. The purpose of this study was to explore the professional experiences of African American women who are fatherhood service providers. There were three research questions addressed in this study: (1) What are the common motivations of African American women who are fatherhood service providers? (2) In what ways do gender, race, and socioeconomic status (power issues) affect their ability to create successful helping relationships with African American nonresidential fathers? and (3) How do African American women who are fatherhood service providers negotiate issues of power and authority in their professional relationships with African American nonresidential fathers? This critical qualitative research study was guided by womanist and postmodern theories. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with thirteen African American women who were fatherhood service providers in Atlanta, GA, Alexandria, LA, Baltimore, MD, Milwaukee, WI, New Orleans, LA, and Washington, D.C. Findings of this study indicated that African American women who were fatherhood service providers were motivated to provide direct services to African American nonresidential fathers in order to foster change and equity. The findings also indicated that gender, race, and socioeconomic status impacted helping relationships in various ways. Finally, the women indicated that issues of power and authority are negotiated by finding balance and meeting the fathers’ social and spatial needs. Advisors/Committee Members: June Hopps.
