Influence of Black Is Beautiful Program on Black Adolescents' Drawings and High Status Job Selections.
Sacks, Susan Riemer
Drawings of men by black boys, collected Spring 1969 at two junior high schools--one with a Black is Beautiful (BB) program, found twice as many (34 percent) black men drawn in BB school. Of 186 total drawings, 24 percent were unmistakably black, 263 "You" and "They" forms of the Choose-a-Man task being completed in the two schools along with 100 from North Carolina. Students themselves ("You") overwhelmingly hired black store managers from four photographs, varying from Caucasian to Negroid. BB program students thought the store ("They") would select a black manager; non-program and North Carolina students thought a non-black would as frequently become manager.
