Stevenson, Melissa Ruth
Journal of Intergroup Relations, v28 n2 p17-32 Sum 2001
Examined African American women's physical and emotional responses to racism. Women from varying socioeconomic status (SES) backgrounds completed anxiety questionnaires, rated their stress levels during a video on racial incidents in the U.S., and provided periodic heart and blood pressure measurements. The participants experienced heightened anxiety while watching the video. Higher SES women were more reactive than lower SES women. (SM)
