Patterns of Racial Identity Development of African American Adolescent Males and Females.
Plummer, Deborah L.
Journal of Black Psychology, v21 n2 p168-80 May 1995
Examined patterns of racial identity expression for 174 black adolescent females and 111 black adolescent males. Results from the Black Racial Identity Attitude Scale reveal that black adolescents widely endorse internalization attitudes that represent a healthy, self-defined racial transcendence. Females endorsed less preencounter attitudes (prediscovery of racial identity). Adolescent racial identity research limitations are discussed. (GR)
