Developmental Influences and Gang Awareness among African-American Inner City Youth.
Cadwallader, Tom W.; Cairns, Robert B.
Social Development, v11 n2 p245-65 2002
A study of 489 African American first-, fourth-, and seventh-grade students examined children's knowledge of gangs. Findings indicated that students are well aware of gang activities in their neighborhoods and can readily name the groups present in their inner-city environment. Students' awareness of gangs increases with age and may represent a risk factor in early development. (TJQ)
