Ervin, Kelly S.
Journal of Black Studies, v31 n6 p764-76 Jul 2001
Hypothesized that African American college students with higher racial self-esteem would be more open to diversity and multiculturalism than students with lower racial self-esteem. Surveys indicated that most students valued diversity-oriented courses, though most also believed that diversity courses were biased against African Americans. Students with higher racial self-esteem were found to be less open to diversity than those with lower self-esteem. (SM)
