FrazierNABSW

E. Franklin Frazier, Director of the Atlanta School of Social Work from 1922 to 1927, is probably the best known of the African American pioneers in social work. He is scarcely well known; the Encyclopedia of Social Work did not include his biography until 1987 and schools of social work rarely note and less often study his contributions to the field.

This documentary, produced by Allan King, examines the life of the alcoholic derelict on Vancouver’s “skid row”. In this segment, Jimmy, who lives by the harbour, talks about his life over the years and how he has survived living on the streets. His answers reflect the hopelessness he feels about his day-to-day existence, often panhandling and spending the money on alcohol.

Standoff between militia and strikers, Lawrence, Mass. 1912. Prompted by a wage cut, the walkout spread quickly from mill to mill across the city. Strikers defied the assumptions of conservative trade unions within the American Federation of Labor that immigrant, largely female and ethnically diverse workers could not be organized. The Lawrence strike is referred to as the “Bread and Roses” strike and “The Strike for Three Loaves.”

In 1985, the numerous small initiatives exploring these challenges and opportunities found each other and gained momentum. In the USA, Dick Schoech launched the first issue of the Computers in human services journal with the support of people like Walter LaMendola. This was an expansion of the already existing Computer Use in Social Services Network (CUSSN). The journal was later renamed to Journal of Technology in Human Services. Also in 1985 in the UK, Bryan Glastonbury published his Computers in social work. These people, together with e.g. Hein de Graaf (NL), Jackie Rafferty (UK), Rob MacFadden (Canada) and Jan Steyaert (NL & B) launched HUSITA (Human Service Information Technology Applications) and ENITH (European Network for Information Technology and Human Services) and organized a series of almost yearly global or European conferences. The American journal was complemented by the UK-bases Computer Applications in Social Work journal. It was later renamed New Technology in the Human Services and ceased to be published in 2003.

Quebec sees the James Bay Project as the key to future prosperity. The Cree believe the massive development will destroy their traditional way of life. Their tense relationship will continue for decades.
