Attitudes Toward Blackness of Black Pre-School Children Attending Community-Controlled or Public Schools.
Bunton, Peter L.; Weissbach, Theodore A.
An attempt was made to assess both the differences in self-concept and racial preference between children who had or had not been exposed to a community-oriented school program, and to examine the change in racial preferences and self-concepts of children before and after exposure to a community-oriented school. Two groups of subjects were used. The first group consisted of 44 black children in kindergarten and first grade attending a predominantly black public school. The second group consisted of 21 black children in kindergarten attending a community-controlled school. Both groups were asked to indicate their preferences for different race dolls. It was hypothesized that children not exposed to the community school program would prefer less frequently and identify less with dolls of their own race than children who were exposed to the program. The data supported the hypothesis. (Author/BW)
