The Attitudes of Negro High School Students in Kansas City, Missouri: A Preliminary Report.
Fiddmont, Norman; Levine, Daniel U.
This report evaluates a questionnaire submitted to 529 economically disadvantaged black high school students in Kansas City, Missouri. The questionnaire was designed to assess attitudes in the following areas: value placed on education and its importance for one's future; interracial relationships, the Black Power movement, and violence; interest and participation in the civil rights movement; and, conditions in local neighborhoods and communities. Although the majority did not condone violence as a means of social protest, the sampling indicated a widespread dissatisfaction, distrust, and bitterness among the high school students. The overriding demand was for a greater share in "opportunities and rewards, rights and privileges." (KG)
