Attitudinal Differentiation between African-American Urbanites and Suburbanites. A Test of Three Accounts.
Sigelman, Lee; Willnat, Lars
Urban Affairs, v35 n5 p677-94 May 2000
Outlines three accounts of attitudinal differentiation between African American urbanites and suburbanites, using data from surveys of African Americans in Washington, DC, and Prince George's County, Maryland, to test hypotheses derived from these accounts (focusing on assimilation, transplantation, and identity persistence). Response patterns were consistent with an identity persistence interpretation, which posits an overriding attitudinal continuity among African Americans. (SM)
