Miller, David B.
Adolescence, v34 n135 p493-501 Fall 1999
Posits that racial socialization and racial identity protect urban African American adolescents against some of the harmful effects of a discriminatory environment. These factors are hypothesized to influence academic achievement - an indicator of resiliency that has been used in many studies. Provides a theoretical framework that combines character development in a hostile environment, bicultural identity, and urban stress models. (Author/MKA)
