Black Family Planning: Attitudes of Leaders and a General Sample.
Harris, William G.; And Others
Attitudes of black leaders and a general black population sample toward birth control and family planning issues were "Pro Birth Control" and "Genocide Fears." The leaders questioned held positions in twenty national black organizations, while the general population samples were taken from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Charlotte, North Carolina. A significant difference was found on the "Pro Birth Control" scale, indicating that black leaders were more favorable toward birth control, a conventional vehicle for black improvement. Lack of difference on the "Genocide Fears" scale may indicate the pervasiveness of black alienation from the larger society. (Author/APM)
