This is a novel that comes out of the U.S. Civil Rights Movement. The book is an epic survey with psychological and cultural contexts. It spans history from the African slave trade to the contemporary challenges of an increasingly multicultural America. Against the backdrop of myth, it vividly brings back the powerful music of the 1960s, the political tensions, the energy and tumult of the movement, the dramatic force of voter registration drives, marches, protests and rallies as the winds of change swept the country.

This book is about the journey of development - a process of discovering who we are and who we could be. The author seeks 'the pattern that connects' the theories of the orthodox, postmodern and even post-postmodern researchers in order to create a comprehensive roadmap, equipping readers, and through them, their organizations, to make their greatest contribution to the renewal of our failing global systems in our increasingly interrelated and interdependent world.

No “how-to” manual exists on cultural competency. And, compared to other topics in nonprofit management, little exists on the skills and strategies needed to address racism and inequity. Building cultural competency is an ongoing journey that nonprofit leaders choose to take because they know the end result will be a more inclusive, connected, and effective organization. Patricia St. Onge and her contributing authors help readers grapple with the urgent issues that can transform capacity builders into change agents in the nonprofit sector.
Edited by Jeana Wirtenberg, Ph.D. with William G. Russell and David Lipsy, Ph.D.
