Akbar, Maysa; Chambers, John W., Jr.; Thompson, Vetta L. Sanders
Journal of Black Psychology, v27 n3 p341-58 Aug 2001
Examined the relationship between black identity, Afrocentric values, and self-esteem among 161 Jamaican young adolescents age 8-13 years from 4 summer camps. Participant surveys indicated that Afrocentric values, black identity, and self-esteem were correlated for female adolescents but not for male adolescents. Self-esteem explained more of the variance in female black identity than did Afrocentric values. (SM)
