Janie Ward, Ed.D:  For over twenty years my professional work and research interests have centered on the developmental issues of African American adolescents, focusing on identity and moral development in African American girls and boys. Along with my teaching responsibilities I work with youth counselors, secondary school educators and other practitioners in a variety of school-based and out-of-school settings. I recently completed a study of socialization practices of White mothers of Chinese daughters and a chapter on educational and clinical interventions with children in schools against everyday colorism.
