Race, Class, and Gender in America: Narratives of Opportunity among Low-Income African American Youths.
O'Connor, Carla
Sociology of Education, v72 n3 p137-57 Jul 1999
Examines how low-income African American high school students situate race, class, and gender in the process of status attainment. Finds that the students emphasized the importance of hard work, individual effort, and education but their overall views were complicated by their interpretation of how race, class, and gender affect life chances. Contains references. (CMK)
