The Complexity of African American Racial Identification.
Sanders Thompson, Vetta L.
Journal of Black Studies, v32 n2 p155-65 Nov 2001
Interviewed adult African Americans regarding four parameters of racial identification (psychological, physical, cultural, and sociopolitical). Results indicated generally high levels of racial identification across participants, though scores varied across parameters. The highest level of racial identification was obtained on the cultural parameter. Only 15 percent of participants demonstrated consistent levels of racial identification across parameters. (SM)
