"Have we come to the conclusion that African American men are unwilling or unable to participate in the important work of childrearing? Women certainly have a stake in the issue, and in Engaging and Working with African American Fathers: Strategies and Lessons Learned women take the lead to dispel this myth and clarify the social and policy reality of the vital work of engaging fathers. It is an essential contribution to fatherhood scholarship and analysis." Jacquelyn Boggess, Lecturer at University of Wisconsin School of Social Work and Executive Director at the Center for Family Policy & Practice "Rollins and her contributors have done a tremendous job in pulling together practices that will help to unify the current fragmented approaches to working with African American fathers. I would argue that this book must be regarded as a greatly important contribution to the fatherhood literature. It is invaluable for the manner in which authors combine the lessons learned on how to engage and work with both custodial and non-custodial fathers in the spheres of health, economics, and child development." Obie Clayton, Director of the Quality Enhancement Plan, ASA Edmond Ware Distinguished Professor in the Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice "This book is an impressive work by a team of extraordinary women! A must-read for fatherhood and family practitioners. The book illuminates the importance of understanding the challenges faced by African American fathers, yet, it also provides strategies for empowering them toward being the best fathers. This work is a genuine gift to the field of responsible fatherhood." Jeffery Johnson, President of the National Partnership for Community Leadership
