"An important book for African Americans nationwide; I believe it will make a real impact on the way we view comprehensive health care for communities of color in this country." 

Kweisi Mfume
President and CEO, NAACP

"This is a fascinating, lucid, and well-written book which addresses the important subjects of health promotion and disease prevention from an African American perspective. The text nicely integrates theory and practice relating to coalition building, and provides excellent case examples. Given the growing interest in the delivery of more culturally responsive care to our diverse society, this text should be of great interest to audiences that include patients/consumers, health professions educators, and policy-makers."
