The Path to Social and Legal Recognition Katie L. Acosta

NEW YORK UNIVERSITY PRESS

A stark disparity exists between black and white youth experiences in the jus�ce system today. When it comes to incarcera�on, race trumps class. In this revealing book, Carl Suddler brings to light a much longer history of the policies and strategies that tethered the lives of black youths to the jus�ce system indefinitely.

Lesbian, bisexual, and queer families formed a�er the dissolu�on of a marriage face a range of obstacles. In Queer Stepfamilies, Ka�e L. Acosta offers a wealth of insight into their complex experiences as they nego�ate paren�ng among mul�ple parents and family-building in a world not designed to meet their needs.
