Interpersonal Relationships: Exploring Race and Relationship Decisions among African American College Men
McGowan, Brian L.
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v53 n3 p243-255 2016
This study explores how race influenced African American men's interpersonal relationships with other men at a predominantly White institution. The use of both semi-structured and photo-elicitation interview formats provided participants an opportunity to reflect on their precollege experiences, identity, and relationships. Two categories emerged during data analysis: (a) racial diversity of hometown and relationship formation, and (b) environmental influences on racial identity and decisions about relationships. Implications for future research and practice are offered.
