The triumphs of Joseph : how today's community healers are reviving our streets and neighborhoods by Robert L Woodson( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Triumphs of Joseph is a tribute to a contemporary miracle - neighborhood healers of the inner city who exemplify the imagination, the courage, and the self-help ethic necessary to renew our communities. Robert L. Woodson, Sr., sees Joseph as a prototype of the men and women who battle daily to change lives in our poorest neighborhoods. While many such modern "Josephs" exist, Woodson argues, their efforts are too often ignored or disparaged by "Pharaoh's courtiers"--The people who have a vested interest in the existence of poverty and racial tensions and have drawn attention away from solutions to the problem. Woodson concedes that racism and discrimination exist, but he insists that they are not the primary and most lethal cause of social disintegration in black communities. According to Woodson, drug abuse, theft, and gang activity are merely the localized evidence of a moral disintegration that is rampant in all walks of American life, white and black, rich and poor alike. This powerful appeal for the revitalization of American society shows that solutions exist in the vision and deeds of the street-level Josephs whose efforts and voices we must heed

Nonprofit executive and social activist Robert L. "Bob" Woodson was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on April 8, 1937. Woodson grew up in poverty, but committed his life to the empowerment of the disenfranchised. At seventeen, he joined the Air Force and turned his life around. Woodson earned his G.E.D. while in the service, going on to study mathematics at Cheyney University. Woodson then took a job at a juvenile jail. As Woodson began to identify with the kids in the jail, he dedicated himself to helping them. He decided to go into social work, attending the University of Pennsylvania, where he earned an M.S.W. Woodson worked as a research fellow at the American Enterprise Institute before becoming founder and president of the National Center for Neighborhood Enterprise (NCNE) in 1981. For his work, Woodson received a "Genius Grant" from the MacArthur Foundation in 1990
