Abstract

Commenting on Professor Montré D. Carodine's Essay in this volume, Race is Evidence, Professor Tanya Asim Cooper offers another counter-narrative to question the notion of progress in the American civil rights story, and highlight one of the great civil rights problems of our time: the disproportionate representation of Native American and African American children in foster care and the disparities they experience.

Keywords: civil rights, foster care, racial bias, child welfare, racial disparities, systems change, systems thinking, collective impact
