Gandy, Oscar H., Jr.
Journal of Black Studies, v31 n5 p600-18 May 2001
Investigated the influence of racial identity on the relationship between media and perception of risk among African Americans. A radio campaign was implemented to reduce domestic violence among African Americans. Telephone interviews before, during, and after the campaign indicated that the correlations between racial identity and risk perceptions were statistically significant. Education was a significant predictor of estimates of risk. (SM)
