Journal of Black Psychology, v28 n3 p261-75 Aug 2002

Results for students indicate that black participants exposed to a character behaving counter to stereotypes in the presence of whites reported feeling more anxious compared to black students seeing black characters behaving stereotypically. Discusses results in terms of the susceptibility of black students at a predominantly white college to stereotypes. (SLD)
