Family and work are major, integrally related dimensions of social life which affect the well-being and success of family members. As social institutions, family and work are also avenues where social inequality may be understood as a major element in the distribution of social, cultural, and economic resources and sites where inequality is perpetuated, negotiated, and contested. In this book, editors Durr and Hill focus on African Americans, navigating the terrain of race, work, and family, and examining persistent barriers to equality and ways in which Blacks have sought to become an integral part of the American economy.

Shirley A. Hill is a professor of sociology at the University of Kansas, where she studies family diver�sity, social inequality, and health care. She is the author of Race, Work, and Family: New Century Values Among African American Men and Women (co-edited with Marlese Durr; Rowman & Littlefield, �2006); Black Intimacies: A Gender Perspective on Families and Relationships (AltaMira, �2005); African American Children: Their Socialization and Development in Families (SAGE, �1999); and other books and articles. Her current research focuses on racial disparities in educational attainment.
