Black Consciousness and Political Orientations.
Jones, McKinley A.
An excerpt from a dissertation, this paper reflects the major aspects of a study of the relationship between black consciousness and political orientation. A major thesis of the study is that black consciousness shapes and orients the individual and is critical to the understanding of political socialization. Of particular interest to the study are the affective, cognitive, behavioral, and evaluative areas of orientation. A questionnaire was used to tap these orientations in the population of subjects at the seventh through twelfth-grade levels. The results of the study indicate that black consciousness correlates more with political variables than with any other factor. The statistics and a breakdown of the results are presented. A bibliography is included. (Author/BS)
