Journal of Intergroup Relations, v27 n4 p40-48 Win 2000-2001
Describes a study in which young, urban African American adolescents with behavior problems participated in weekly group sessions that used rap music to promote the development of appropriate social skills related to morality, identity, judgement, decision making, anger management, impulse control, and crime and punishment. Overall, student response was positive, and students' communication and interaction patterns improved. (SM)
