About Us


Founded by Sakara Wages, Subversive Social Work is a movement that aims to improve the lived experiences of black, women, social work students and researchers.


This organization was founded based on my experiences at Predominately White Institutions. During my graduate training, I yearned for theories to help me articulate issues that I endured.  It was during this training that I was introduced to the Critical Theories that help me identify colonialism, name the ways in which Social Work Education supports those in power, and work towards ameliorating the often unintentionally harmful impact.  

Stay Tuned! Our mission and Vision will be generated by black female scholars and revised as often as necessary to continue to meet to supplemental needs of black social work students and researchers.
