Unconscious Communication of Internalized Oppression among African American Women: A Small Group Theoretical Model.
Dorsey, Laura Kathleen
This paper attempts to fill the gap in the field of communication concerning African American women. It postulates that the African American woman's unique experience with both racism and sexism influences specific types of communication when she is called upon to communicate solely with other African American women. It builds upon the psychological concept of internalized oppression among African American women and claims that it unconsciously manifests itself via small group communication. The paper introduces a proposed theoretical model which illustrates the fundamentals of particular unconscious communicative phenomena in an effort to stimulate further theoretical discussion and communication theory-building concerning African American women. Contains 22 references and a figure illustrating the theoretical model. (Author/RS)
