  • Black Church Electoral and Protest Politics from 2002 to 2012: a Social
           Media Analysis of the Resistance Versus Accommodation Dialectic
    • Abstract: Abstract The continued debate about whether the Black Church has lost its activist voice is rooted in the historic resistance versus accommodation dialectic. The former stance positions the Black Church for involvement in electoral and protest politics; the latter stymies these processes. This project examines the contemporary Black Church's political presence on several social media sites. Findings document its continued political involvement thematically associated with calls for social justice and moral action, electoral and protest politics, redress for social problems, and a linked fate mentality and collective memory. Moreover, results illustrate how electoral and protest politics, based on a historic Black Church cultural toolkit, can reflect both a social issue to be championed and a strategic process used to promote other agendas. A resistance versus accommodation dialectical model provides a cogent explanation for the political pluralism and ambiguity such congregations can exhibit as well as for many Black Christians to prioritize issues of racial justice and economic empowerment above more conservative religious views they may espouse.

  • Black Women’s Agenda Setting in the Maryland State Legislature
    • Abstract: Abstract African American women state legislators’ political agendas are assumed to reflect the distinct interests and substantive needs of African Americans, women, and African American women as unique constituencies. We hypothesize that African American women elected to state legislatures are more likely than African American men, White women, and White men, to advocate for issues that affect racial/ethnic minorities, women, and African American women. Using bill sponsorship as a measure of individual contributions to the legislative agenda, the current study examined the extent to which legislators from different racial and gender identity groups sponsor bills that directly and indirectly impact marginalized groups. Data from Maryland’s 2005 and 20011 legislative sessions were analyzed, and results suggest that issues facing marginalized groups were sponsored by legislators from various backgrounds, yet African American women’s contribution is unique and speaks to the importance of the presence of diversity in state legislatures.

  • Africana Studies’ Epistemic Identity: An Analysis of Theory and
           Epistemology in the Discipline
    • Abstract: Abstract The present study explores what is revealed about the epistemetic characteristics Africana Studies through an analysis of theories in the discipline. Race/ethnic specific theories in Africana Studies are subjected to a reductive analysis to identify the most common qualities they possess. The results indicate that although Africana Studies theories seek to explain a wide range of dimensions of the lives of people of African descent, they have several common characteristics, such as: Recognition of the Necessity of Cultural Specificity, Prioritization of Africana Needs and Interests, Heterogeneous Collectivism, Collective Emancipation and Empowerment, Agency and Self Consciousness, Historical Location, Cultural Situating, Recognizing the Shaping Effects of Oppression and Liberation, and Intersectionality. The present study helps to distinguish the unique approach to knowing in Africana Studies. Moreover, the data may be utilized to guide theory development in the discipline.

  • Patterns of Emotional Social Support and Negative Interactions among
           African American and Black Caribbean Extended Families
    • Abstract: Abstract This study examines patterns of emotional support and negative interaction (i.e., criticism, conflict) from extended family members using data on African Americans and Caribbean Blacks from the National Survey of American Life. A pattern variable was constructed that describes four types of extended family networks: (1) high emotional support and high negative interaction (ambivalent), (2) high emotional support and low negative interaction (optimal), (3) low emotional support and low negative interaction (estranged) and (4) low emotional support and high negative interaction (strained). Multi-nominal logistic regression was used to investigate the sociodemographic and familial (e.g., frequency of family contact) correlates of the patterns of extended family networks. Family closeness and contact, as well as gender, age and marital status were associated with extended family network types. Optimal family networks were associated with higher levels of family contact and closeness; women, younger adults and unmarried persons were more likely than their counterparts to have more advantageous extended family networks. Overall, findings for African Americans and Caribbean Blacks revealed both important similarities (e.g., gender, marital status, family closeness and contact) and differences (e.g., age) in the sociodemographic and familial correlates of diverse extended family networks.

  • Righting Society's Wrongs: Contextual Perspectives of EEO/AA
    • Abstract: Abstract In this paper, we review the contextual background that has provided the pretext for the varying responses by US corporations to Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) and Affirmative Action (AA) issues over the years. The Hewlett-Packard Company is used as a case study to explore specific responses to EEO/AA issues. From this case study, we derive practical implications for how corporations around the world might better negotiate the legal environment of their respective country, as it relates to EEO/AA issues.

  • Authentic Engagement: Practice with African American Males
    • Abstract: Abstract This article describes the influence of environment as it relates to the plight of African American males in American society. Person in the environment (PIE) is a theoretical construct used to explain the relationship between one’s environment and life experience. This paper uses PIE as the overarching framework for outlining a strategy for human service practice with the African American male. The authors contend that African American males are particularly challenged as they face institutionalized racism and lack of awareness from practitioners whose task is to assist yet lack the understanding to intervene in an effective manner. Additionally, the authors discuss what is referred to as authentic engagement and propose it as a method useful for all human service practitioners in working with African American males. This article challenges those who work with African American males to broaden their understanding and increase practice effectiveness through the process of authentic engagement.

  • Professional Sports Experiences as Contested Racial Terrain
    • Abstract: Abstract African-American athletes have been widely represented in the sporting world throughout the twenty-first century. Sport participation has been positive for the group and for American society as a whole by both aiding integration and providing opportunities, such as college scholarships, social mobility, etc. that may not have been available in other avenues. Comprising 78 % of the National Basketball Association and 67 % of the National Football League, African-Americans males’ overrepresentation as professional athletes seems to illustrate opportunities for the group unfettered by any major barriers (Lapchick 2011). However, contemporary scholars have debated whether or not sports are actually a way out of less than desirable economic and social situations for African-American males. Although most Americans, and athletes themselves, think of professional sports in terms of the fame and fortune experienced by the most successful athletes, this article examines the experiences that is perhaps most common among professional athletes through the lens of contested racial terrain.

  • Edward A. Bouchet: A Model for Understanding African Americans and Their
           Doctoral Experience
    • Abstract: Abstract The life and experiences of Dr. Edward A. Bouchet, the first African-American to receive a doctorate from Yale in 1876, are used to model features of the African-American doctoral experience. Bouchet’s early years and educational experiences are discussed to draw references to contemporary research on prior socialization toward doctoral degree completion. His experiences during doctoral study are highlighted to develop conclusions about literature regarding doctoral student socialization frameworks as they relate to the current experiences of African-American students. Furthermore, Bouchet’s life after the doctorate characterizes many issues associated with challenges faced by African-American doctoral degree completers and their postdoctoral degree completion experiences.

  • Triple Jeopardy: A Qualitative Investigation of the Experiences of
           Nontraditional African-American Female Students in One Hispanic-Serving
           Institution
    • Abstract: Abstract The purpose of this article is to provide key insights on the experiences of the nontraditional African-American female undergraduate student. A grounded theory design used in-depth interviews with 10 nontraditional African-American female undergraduate students attending a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI) in the Southwest. Findings suggest that academe must address the unique academic and social integration issues these students present from vantage points recognizing their African-American, female, and nontraditional identities. The authors conclude with recommendations to institutions of higher education for enhancing the matriculation experiences of this cohort.

  • Beyond “Model Minority,” “Superwoman,” and
           “Endangered Species”: Theorizing Intersectional Coalitions
           among Black Immigrants, African American Women, and African American Men
    • Abstract: Abstract This essay brings an intersectional framework to the academic and popular discourse regarding relations of power among African American men, African American women, and Black immigrants. I demonstrate that African American women and Black immigrants are not necessarily and always more successful than African American men. Instead, all three groups share an experience of gendered and ethnicized racism that situates them differently in the labor force, the classroom, and beyond. Most importantly, African American men, African American women, and Black immigrants can forge feminist, anti-racist, and anti-nativist coalitions if and when they recognize that what it means to experience gendered and ethnicized racism is the result of rather than the reason for their politics.

  • “You Ain’t No Denzel”: African American Men’s Use
           of Popular Culture to Narrate and Understand Marriage and Romantic
           Relationships
    • Abstract: Abstract Beyond the scholarship citing the proliferation of negative media representations of African Americans, Black males in particular, little is known about the ways in which these men understand media and use them to make meaning of their lives. To fill this gap, the current study analyzes qualitative interview data from 33 African American men focused on the their expressions and demonstrations of relationship commitment, whether they perceived idealized relationships as either models or unattainable goals and their conceptions of how Black men are framed in the media. Findings reveal that our participants consume many mediated representations of Black men and, more importantly, they encode and decode these images to understand, describe, and narrate their own romantic, heterosexual relationship experiences. Furthermore, the findings from this study demonstrate the need to include Black men in conversations about media, relationships, and their lived experiences. Implications for future study also are also discussed.

  • The African-American Personality: Early Conceptions
    • Abstract: Abstract The personality traits and characteristics of African-Americans have been described, measured, and compared to those of other racial groups throughout the history of psychology in the USA. Most of the views commonly held were negative, and African-Americans were viewed as an inferior race. This study sought to investigate the early conceptions pertaining to the personality of African‐Americans, review the experimental research done in this area, and discuss the influences on and impact of these early studies.

  • Cohabitating Partners and Domestic Labor in Low-Income Black Families
    • Abstract: Abstract This article examines the division of domestic labor in low-income cohabiting Black stepfamilies. We analyze survey data collected from 136 such families in order to understand how stepparent gender and relationship length impact the distribution of domestic labor. We hypothesize that women do more domestic work than men across all three family types, and that stepfathers are more involved in domestic labor in established relationships compared to new relationships. Findings indicate that cohabiting stepfathers in both new and established cohabiting Black stepfamilies make substantial contributions to domestic labor. These families demonstrate a division of labor consistent with traditional gender roles, though both partners agree on how much work each does. Parents, regardless of gender, are more involved in domestic labor than stepparents.

  • Perceptions of Body Figure Attractiveness Among African American Male
           College Students
    • Abstract: Abstract Historically, females who had large body figures and considered overweight were seen as the epitome of beauty within the African American culture. More specifically, African American females with large body figures were perceived by African American males as smart, sexy, employable, desirable, wanted, marriatable, and rulers of their households. However, as African American males acculturate into the dominate culture via their college attendance, their perceptions of body figure attractiveness may begin to change towards perceptions that are similar to those of the dominate culture. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to examine African American male college students’ perceptions of body figure attractiveness. Participants in this study consisted of 227 African American male college students between 18 and 31 years of age from two Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and two Traditionally White Institutions (TWIs) across the Southeast and Northeast regions of the United States. Findings from this study revealed that African American male college students’ perceptions of body figure attractiveness are changing towards those similar of the dominant culture. Thus, implications are discussed relative to the potential influence in which African American males’ perceived body figure attractiveness may have on African American females.

  • Social Change for Social Betterment: African Americans in
           Nineteenth-Century Philadelphia, PA
    • Abstract: Abstract This study, undergirded by social change theory, resulted in an acknowledgement of the names of individuals and organizations and a deeper understanding of the roles and positions they assumed as social change agents in Philadelphia during the Progressive Era as they struggled to fight for social rights, human rights, and social and humanitarian service delivery for freed slaves and Blacks in Philadelphia. African American liberation and social change is rooted in social conflict, and while many may consider that it is the one of the most prevailing and long-lasting conflicts that exists in American society—the struggle between African Americans and Caucasian Americans—it is a conflict that, at this point in American history, had not yet reached a resolution. Blacks in Philadelphia and throughout America were forced to rely on their personal abilities, strength, and resiliency to move through the process of fighting for social change.

  • Exposure to Prison Sexual Assault among Incarcerated Black Men
    • Abstract: Abstract Despite the enactment of the Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003 (PREA), human rights abuses involving sexual assaults abound in US prisons. Exposure to these assaults may contribute to posttraumatic stress and antisocial behavior among incarcerated Black men, because their rates of incarceration are disproportionately high. However, research on exposure to sexual assault in US prisons is limited. An anonymous self-report questionnaire on prison sexual assault exposure was administered to 134 randomly selected incarcerated Black men. Forty-three percent reported hearing sexual assaults occurring within the facility and 16 % visually witnessed them. Sexual orientation was associated with witnessing sexual assault (χ2 = 3.68, df = 1, p < 0.05). Findings from this study suggest that sexual assaults may be common in US prisons despite the PREA directive to eliminate such incidents. Conventional violence prevention programs and interventions may not meet the unique needs of prison populations given the high exposure to sexually coercive behaviors reported.

  • The “Black Girl Turn” in Research on Gender, Race, and Science
           Education: Toward Exploring and Understanding the Early Experiences of
           Black Females in Science, a Literature Review
    • Abstract: Abstract For the past 40 years, research studies have largely focused on sex equity issues. However, within the last few years, gender equity issues have become a hotly debated area of research. One may contend that sex is biologically determined maleness and femaleness; whereas, gender is influenced by cultural, social, and historical factors. Although, there has been much emphasis on the unfair treatment or exclusion of girls from science, the focus was mainly on White, middle class girls with little focus placed on Black girls. Thus, this has fueled the debate for the promotion of the “Black Girl Turn” in research on gender, race, and science education, as over the centuries Blacks and girls have been denied their turn in science due to cultural and historical–biological reasons. This literature review concludes with a call for more student-based inquiry approaches that can explore and seek to understand Black females’ experiences in science.
