"Raise Up a Child"

Human Development in an African-American Family

Edith Hudley, Wendy Haight, and Peggy Miller

  • Tells the story of Edith Hudley--an African-American grandmother born poor in rural texas in 1920--in her own words. Her story is a vivid portrait of the multiple intersections of history, culture, community, and family in the development of human behavior.
  • Haight, and Miller provide "interludes" following each section drawing connections between Hudley's story and broader HBSE themes.
  • An appendix, "Some Notes for Students" provides an opportunity for reflection and critical thinking
