Urban Education, v52 n9 p1080-1105 Nov 2017
The purpose of this study is to describe the psychology of Black males attending private, not-for-profit, colleges and universities in urban areas. Surveys were administered over three semesters to 886 Black male college students attending 28 national colleges/universities in various urban settings across the United States. The psychological domains examined in this study included academic and racial attitudes, expressive behaviors, mental and physical health, values/priorities, rap music listening habits, leadership, masculinity, and spirituality. Overall, the results reveal that Black males in these settings are mentally healthy, possess predominantly positive attitudes, and tend to engage in constructive and/or productive behaviors.
