NEGRO SELF-CONCEPT--IMPLICATIONS FOR SCHOOL AND CITIZENSHIP.
KVARACEUS, WILLIAM C.; AND OTHERS
THREE SECTIONS ARE PRESENTED--(1) THE SELF-CONCEPT--BASIS FOR REEDUCATION OF NEGRO YOUTH (2) POLITICAL SOCIALIZATION OF NEGROES--IMAGE DEVELOPMENT OF SELF AND POLITY (3) NEGRO YOUTH AND SOCIAL ADAPTATION--THE ROLE OF THE SCHOOL AS AN AGENT OF CHANGE. SOME OF THE ISSUES DISCUSSED ARE--THAT THE PROBLEM IS ONE OF DISADVANTAGED YOUTH AS WELL AS A SPECIFIC RACIAL ONE, THAT THE PACE OF THE NEGRO REVOLT AND SOCIAL CHANGE IS INCREASING, THAT THE SCHOOLS ARE INTRICATELY INVOLVED IN A SOCIAL REVOLUTION, AND THAT THE NEGRO HAS A PROBLEM OF FINDING A SENSE OF SELF AS HE MOVES UP THE SOCIAL STRUCTURE. PROPOSALS FOR CHANGING SOCIAL-CIVIC PROCESS INVOLVE MORE EFFECTIVE POLITICS, GREATER USE OF THE SCHOOL, COMMUNITY EVENTS (LIKE BOYCOTTS AND SIT-INS), PARENTAL ACTION REGARDING THE SCHOOL, AND INVOLVEMENT WITH MUNICIPAL COUNTY AND STATE GOVERNMENT UNITS.
