The Maternal Socialization of Black Adolescent Mothers.
Rowley, Chishamiso T.
Race, Gender & Class: An Interdisciplinary and Multicultural Journal, v9 n1 p168-84 2002
Examined the meaning of motherhood for black adolescent mothers. Interviews with and observations of mothers in an educational and vocational training program indicated that while some mothers found positive and self-affirming ways to express maternal identity, they continued to negotiate with negative and stigmatizing messages about themselves, some of which were conveyed by institutions with which they engaged.
