Exploring the Last 100 Years of Research on Black Families

Please join us on Wednesday, November 2nd at 1:00 p.m. to hear Chrishana M. Lloyd present how family science and scholars from other disciplines have been conducting research on and about Black families for over 100 years. This presentation will utilize a historical lens and racial equity framing to provide a decade-by-decade overview of research on Black families starting from 1920 and ending in 2020.  Key themes, identification of areas of in-depth and limited knowledge, and suggestions for additional questions and methods for future research will be shared.
