The Changing Image of the Black American: A Socio-psychological Appraisal.
Williams, Robert L.
Black culture has always been considered inferior, as the patterns of integration testify: the Black child has been sent to the white school but never vice-versa. The net result of America's history of discrimination has been a negative self-image for the Black person, an image which the "Black is Beautiful" movements are trying to counteract. Positive self and cultural images are necessary for raising expectations and helping Blacks to unite to gain civil rights.
