I tried Ken's link and got a message "access denied". Oh well. Anyway, I wanted to say there's some good literature for Afro-American survivors out there. I mentioned a few items to Terrick/Clockwise in a post earlier today, and here is a fuller list, for those who are interested:
*Abney, Veronica D., and Ronnie Priest, "African Americans and Child Sexual Abuse", in Lisa Aronson Fontes, ed., Sexual Abuse in Nine North American Cultures: Treatment and Prevention (Thousand Oaks, CA: Sage Publications, 1995).
*Lori S. Robinson. I Will Survive: the African-American Guide to Healing from Sexual Assault and Abuse. (New York: Seal Press, 2002).
*Robin D. Stone, No Secrets, No Lies: How Black Families Can Heal from Sexual Abuse (New York: Harlem Moon, 2004), esp. pp. 149-68.
Also valuable are:
*Boyd-Franklin, Nancy. Black Families in Therapy: a Multisystems Approach (New York: Guilford Press, 1989).
*Boyd-Franklin, Nancy, A.J. Franklin, and Pamela Toussaint. Boys into Men: Raising Our African American Teenage Sons (New York: Plume, 2000).
Ken (S.) is right about this population being underserved, not only here but also more generally. So far as I can recall, none of the studies listed above is cited in any of the mainstream accounts we have for male survivors. It's the sort of thing that would be worth encouraging at the level of the BoD as part of our commitment to outreach and activism.
