Identity Development for Black Adolescents in Predominately White Rural Communities
McGriff, Deborah L.
Multicultural Learning and Teaching, v4 n1 p64-77 Aug 2009
Research on identity development of African American adolescents in predominantly White rural settings is virtually nonexistent. This article examines current literature on the developmental tasks of adolescents and issues of ethnic congruence for African American students in predominately White rural communities. In addition, it calls for critical conversations on this overlooked population. Recommendations for future research using Critical Race Theory is presented.
