African Immigrants and Refugees in the United States go through a process of retention and integration. They retain some cultural and traditional characteristics of their homelands while adopting characteristics from the United States of America. Their duration of stay in the USA influences this process. Over time, African immigrants may regard themselves as, for example, Somali-Americans, Ugandan-Americans, or Sudanese-Americans because their identities and behaviors melded cultural features of both lands. Unlike most communities affected by HIV/AIDS in the USA, entrenched stigma towards HIV/AIDS and PLWHA exists within the African Immigrant and Refugee communities; neither knowledge of the disease nor duration of stay in USA seem to substantially reduce stigma against HIV/AIDS and PLWHA. There is an urgent need for community activists, policy makers, and providers to undertake a focused campaign to address stigma in these communities. Stigma will not go away overnight. It will require a systematic multifaceted strategy on the part of all stakeholders to fight it. Furthermore, African Immigrants and Refugees should also become competent in navigating the American healthcare system
Reed and his colleagues consider the health status of African-Americans and the medical care available to them. In their study, they clearly link the economic condition of black Americans to the care they receive. Indeed, the disadvantaged position in which most African-Americans are locked correlates to their level of illness and medical care deprivation. Drawing attention to the high percentage of adverse birth outcomes, increasing cancer rates, homicide trends and the special problem of Sickle Cell Anemia, the authors call for social and economic policy changes that will result in an adequate level of care. This important research brings new attention to not only the often noted issues of AIDS and substance abuse but to the 'invisible epidemic,' lead poisoning. The book is a call to national conscience.
From teen pregnancy and single parenting to athletics and HIV/AIDS, myths about African American families abound. This provocative book by two acclaimed scholars of race and ethnicity debunks many common myths about black families in America, sharing stories and drawing on the latest research to show the realities. African American Families Today examines the wellbeing of African American families around topics including marriage, health, education, incarceration, wealth, and more. Authors Angela J. Hattery and Earl Smith show that even though the election of the first African American president, Barack Obama, has been symbolically important for African Americans, his presidency has not had a measurable impact on the daily lives of African American families. As the book shows, racial inequality persists-we're clearly not in a 'postracial' society.
This book contains a complete checklist of African American newspapers identified in all major bibliographic sources--newspaper directories, union lists, finding aids, African American bibliographies, yearbooks, and specifically African American newspaper sources. In short, it is a comprehensive checklist of every newspaper that has served African Americans since 1827--a total of 5,539 newspapers. For reference purposes the text is arranged in tabular format under the following headings: newspaper title, city and state of publication, frequency of publication, dates, and sources. Newspapers are listed by state and city, which are in alphabetical order, then, by city, in alphabetical order by title. The papers are again listed alphabetically in the index, this time in a single, comprehensive list which serves as the best fingertip reference to black newspapers in existence. This is a core book for any collection of African American reference materials.
