The Attitudes of Students at Black High Schools in Five Cities, Spring 1970.
Levine, Daniel U.; And Others
This is the report of a 1970 followup (to a similar one conducted in 1968) study, the purposes of which were to: (1) determine whether or how the attitudes of Kansas City respondents resembled or differed from attitudes of black youth in other parts of the United States, and (2) determine whether or how much change had occurred in the attitudes of Kansas City youth in a two-year period. Despite problems, data was collected in five cities in various parts of the United States. Major generalizations of the study included the following: (1) attitudes of black youth were relatively uniform from city to city; (2) respondents tended to have little contact with whites but tended to reject separatism & violence; (3) youth in larger cities with larger ghettoes tended to be more fatalistic and alienated; and, (4) widespread support exists for the NAACP, the Black Panthers, and active local organizations.
