Psychological Africanity (Racial Identity) and Its Influence on Support for Reparations
Azibo, Daudi Ajani ya
Journal of Negro Education, v77 n2 p117-130 Spr 2008
Undergraduates at a historically Black university completed the 1997 N'COBRA Reparations Survey. N'COBRA stands for the National Coalition of Blacks for Reparations in America. Five domains of reparations are covered: education, economic development, personal reparations (i.e., payments to individuals), political prisoners, and African-U.S. prisoners generally. Williams' Black Personality Questionnaire (BPQ), a multidimensional measure of psychological Africanity/racial identity, was also completed. Statistically significant high levels of endorsement were found for each reparations domain. Reparations for prisoners, in general, were endorsed the least whereas reparations for education were endorsed the most. High BPQ scoring was associated with support for reparations and low scoring was associated with nonsupport. Pedagogical implications were pointed out. (Contains 3 tables.)
