Excellent article on Carolyn Hill’s struggle with the Philadelphia Department of Human Services (DHS) to adopt her nieces as well as on DHS biases, privatization and poverty. It quotes Selma James, coordinator of the Global Women’s Strike and author of Sex, Race and Class – The Perspective of Winning and Dorothy Roberts, Univ of Pennsylvania law professor and author of Shattered Bonds – The Color of Child Welfare.
