Self-Concept and Race: Basis for Reactions to a Short Story?
Reggy, Mae Alice Turner
A sample of 24 black, female tenth graders was divided into two groups which reacted to a short story about the physical self-concept of either a black central character (group A) or a white central character (group B). Both groups completed a questionnaire measuring their identification responses and a standardized test measuring their self-concept. Results indicated that students with high self-concepts tended to identify with the central character regardless of the race of the character, while students with low self-concepts tended to reject the central character. Black, female tenth graders do not identify with a black central character more than with a white central character. (Author/AA)
