Project Self-esteem: Some Effects of an Elementary School Black Studies Program.
Golin, Sanford
The development of a negative self-concept has been viewed as beginning early in the life of the black child. This report presents results of a project whose goal it was to develop "black consciousness" in black elementary school children. Two hundred students participated in activities designed to develop racial awareness and pride through the fifth and sixth grades. A measure of emotional adjustment was given to these children and a comparable control group at the beginning and end of the project. The results indicated that the project had a significant positive effect on the mental health of male children. (Author)
