    March 27, 2019 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

    This SSW Book Club meeting has been rescheduled from Wed Feb 20. 

    We will discuss Kevin Boyle's book Arc of Justice; A Saga of Race, Civil Rights, and Murder in the Jazz Age. This book tells the "electrifying story of the sensational murder trial that divided a city and ignited the civil rights struggle." It won the 2004 National Book Award for nonfiction.

    On Nov 7, 2018, Jamon Jordan of the Black Scroll Network spoke at SSW. He provided an excellent overview of history and of structural racism, and then told the story of Ossian and Gladys Sweet. His presentation inspired our choice of this book.

    You are welcome to join us whether or not you have attended before, and whether or not you have finished the book.

    All members of the SSW community are invited. Feel free to bring your lunch.

  4. African-Centered Social Work 101: Our [His]story African-Centered Social Work 101: Our [His]story »

    March 27, 2019 - 12:00pm to 2:00pm

    The New Leaders in African-Centered Social Work Scholars invites you to a discussion on African-Centered Social Work. This will be an introduction to African-Centered Social Work theory and practice, come gain tools as to how to engage in service in the Black/African-American community. 

    "Afrocentricity is a concept that existed long before it was named and identified by scholars. The Afrocentric or African-centered way of living pre-exists Western knowledge and civilization (Asante, 1988; Akbar, 1984; Karenga, 1965; Mbiti, 1969; Schiele, 1994, 1996, 1997)...As a viable theory for social workers to use in practice, Afrocentricity utilizes African philosophies, history, and culture as a starting place of interpreting social and psychological phenomena to create relevant approaches of personal, family, and community healing and societal change (Journal of Human Behavior in the Social Environment)."

    Lunch will be served. Please RSVP here

    March 28, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

    The Red Light District of Amsterdam speaks to our imagination as a symbol of Dutch liberalism, pragmatism, and the normalization of the human experience. Bernice Severin will discuss how, behind the neon lights, hides a deeper, darker culture of exploitation. The audience will come away with an understanding of the history, culture, policy, and economics of Dutch prostitution, as it has expanded beyond canal-front windows to sex farms and storage rooms. Bernice Severin is a social worker with Veilig Thuis (Safe At Home), an advice center and hotline for domestic and child abuse. From 2011 to 2017 she worked for the Amsterdam Coordination Center Against Human Trafficking.
