"Racelessnes" in a Canadian Context? Exploring the Link between Black Students' Identity, Achievement, and Mental Health.
Smith, Andrea; Lalonde, Richard N.
Journal of Black Psychology, v29 n2 p142-64 May 2003
Explored the relationship between racial identity, academic achievement, and mental health among 107 black Canadian college students, using Fordham's "racelessness" framework. Results from student surveys and achievement data found no evidence of students adopting a raceless strategy. Racial identity was not directly related to achievement, though possessing a closer affinity to blacks was psychologically protective. Mentally healthier students had more positive academic orientations. (Contains references.) (SM)
