The Exclusion of African Americans and Latinos on Boards and Commissions
No One Asked Us: The Under-representation of African Americans and Latinos on Local Boards and Commissions (paperback) offers strategies to engage African-Americans and Latinos in the civic and political life of their community.
By: Harland Henry, Publicist
"Lack of information and institutional racism are among the barriers that exclude African Americans and Latinos from serving on governance bodies. There are qualified individuals to serve on local and state boards and commissions but they are simply not being asked, given information or encouraged to become involved. This effectively denies minorities a place at the table where important decisions are being made" said Dr. Hamilton Henry.
Joyce Hamilton Henry has a Master's in Social Work from the University of Connecticut, and a Ph. D. in Social Policy from Brandeis University. Dr. Hamilton Henry has worked with local and state governments, non-profits, academia, ethnic and faith-based groups to engage African Americans, Latinos, and Asian Pacific Americans in the civic life of their community.
