Abstract: This critical analysis of the literature examines the racial disproportionality of African-American children in the U.S. child welfare and foster care systems, and disparate access to Child Protective Services (CPS) referred support services. At each critical decision point within child welfare and foster care services, African-American children are disproportionately represented and Black children and families subject to disparate access to employment, housing, mental health assessment and treatment. Competing data regarding non-findings of racial disproportionality in CPS and foster care and disparate treatment among African-American families is presented and examined. Abstract published by arrangement with Taylor and Francis.
