Perceptions of Multiple Identities among Black College Students
Stewart, Dafina Lazarus
Journal of College Student Development, v50 n3 p253-270 May-Jun 2009
A qualitative study of 13 self-identified Black and African American college students across three institutions revealed important findings relevant for understanding the multifaceted and complex ways in which these students both perceived and made meaning of the multiple facets of their identities. Implications for the ways in which social identity factors are seen as cooperative and coherent are discussed. Also, provocative findings related to the incorporation of non-unitary facets of identity are shared. (Contains 2 tables, 1 figure and 1 note.)
