  • Utility of the Beck Anxiety Inventory Among Ghanaians: a Preliminary Study
    • Abstract: The Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI) is a well-known clinical tool for screening anxiety. A number of researches has indicated its utility in a wide range of client groups including adolescents and people with intellectual disability. Its use among predominantly black population in a non-western world, however, is not well-documented. The study set out to examine its psychometric properties among undergraduate students in Ghana. There were 133 participants consisting of 86 males and 47 females with a mean age of 23.83 years (SD = 3.21) who volunteered. The results showed that the full scale mean score was 17.65 (SD = 12.72) with no significant difference between the males and females (t (131) = .05, p > .05, two-tailed). The Cronbach coefficient alpha was .93. The four-factor structure was not supported, instead a three-factor structure consisting of autonomic, somatic, and fear/panic elements was revealed. The correlations between the factors were moderate ranging from .51 to .65. In general, the BAI may be potentially useful as a research tool in Ghana. A number of limitations have been pointed out and future work is required to establish its research and clinical utility in Ghana.

  • Violent Fraternities and Public Security Challenges in Nigerian
           Universities: a Study of the “       class="a-plus-plus">University of the
           South
    • Abstract: A number of public security challenges confronting Nigeria since the late 1980s have been traced to the activities of violent student fraternities in tertiary institutions, especially the universities. Using individual and focus group interviews of 30 participants, this study discusses the structure and violent activities of these fraternities in a university anonymized as the University of the South. Data from the study demonstrate that brutal hazing practices and inter-group conflicts associated with these groups are the principal causes of violence at the institution. The study also suggests that a class kinship between the country’s indigenous bourgeoisie and members of these fraternities undermines government’s interest in confronting the problem.

  • AARMS: The African American Relationships and Marriage Strengthening
           Curriculum for African American Relationships Courses and Programs
    • Abstract: African American Relationships and Marriage Strengthening (AARMS), a curriculum that consists of 10 core areas, was developed to be used for relationships, premarital, and marriage education courses and programs. This paper provides an overview of the rationale for each component of the AARMS curriculum, with the specific goal of providing a framework and strategies for developing an African American relationships course that can be taught at the university or college level or for relationship, premarital, or marriage education for community and faith-based organizations.

  • The International Dimensions of Everyday Black Political Participation
    • Abstract: The extent to which everyday African American political participation operates across US borders is rarely examined. This article explores this phenomenon by asking if there is a relationship between the characteristics of black social movements outside the USA and how African American institutions encourage their constituencies inside the USA to participate politically. Through background research, the authors developed hypotheses about how independent variables relating to the ideology, tactics, and membership of the African independence movement relate to the dependent variable, participation encouragement, by African American institutions. In order to operationalize these measures, data were gathered through the African American Press Internationalism Study—a content analysis of 451 articles and editorials about the African independence movement that appeared in African American newspapers between 1957 and 1971.

  • A “New” Black Nationalism in the USA and France
    • Abstract: This essay examines the relationship between Black Nationalism and demographic change in the Black population of the USA and France. It shows that, unlike previous generations, most Blacks in France are born in France and share common sociopolitical and cultural reference points. As a result, this Black French population deploys new Black Nationalist expressions advocating that Blackness is an integral part of the French nation and that Black citizens are entitled to the same opportunities as Whites. Subversively, people of African descent are inserting Blackness into a supposedly color-blind nation. In contrast to France, the African Diaspora in the USA is increasingly diverse. But due to the misrepresentation of African-American identities and cultural differences, many Black migrants seek to distance themselves from African Americans, a relationship that ironically mirrors intra-Black relations in France of the 1960s and 1970s. Like France, however, demographic change within the Black population in the USA has also reconfigured the parameters of Black Nationalism. I contend that Black Nationalism in the USA is increasingly transnational in character. Indeed, in the post-civil rights era, the Caribbean and African migration has expanded the scope of Black Nationalism from primarily focusing on empowering Black America to offering Caribbean and African countries a better place in the global village. In the process, as the activities of the numerous African chambers of commerce reveal, not only do these “new” transnational Black Nationalist expressions flirt with neoliberal policies but they also adopt a color-blind perspective.

  • Climate Justice, Hurricane Katrina, and African American Environmentalism
    • Abstract: The images of human suffering from New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina remain seared in our nation's collective memory. More than 8 years on, the city and its African-American population still have not recovered fully. This reality highlights an important truth: the disturbances that accompany climate change will first and foremost affect minority communities, many of whom are economically disadvantaged. This paper: (1) describes how Hurricane Katrina, an example of the type of natural disaster that will become more prevalent with intensifying climate change, has impacted the black community of New Orleans; (2) explores the notion that African Americans, in the midst of racial oppression, have developed a unique and powerful brand of environmental thought that has much to contribute to mainstream environmentalism; and (3) argues that the voice of the black community, which has a vested interest in climate outcomes, is critically needed in today's climate debate.

  • Learners of Mathematics: High School Students' Perspectives of Culturally
           Relevant Mathematics Pedagogy
    • Abstract: Culturally relevant pedagogy (CRP) has been suggested by researchers as one method for improving mathematics education among African-American students, but very little research take into account the students' perspectives of CRP. This case study examines students' perspectives of CRP and the effect that participating in culturally relevant mathematics instruction has on students' attitude and interest toward mathematics. Five students that participated in a culturally relevant mathematics intervention were interviewed. African-American students in the study held positive views of CRP and preferred the method over traditional mathematics instruction. There were six themes developed from the results of the interviews: (1) home-like classrooms; (2) ethic of caring; (3) participation opportunities; (4) technology use; (5) confidence; and (6) motivation. In addition, all students that participated in the study experienced an improved attitude and/or interest toward mathematics.

  • Racial Economies of Academia: Africana Studies as Arbiter
    • Abstract: Recent scholarship that suggests the continuity of assaults on the Black body is often articulated from academic spaces. This should neither surprise nor comfort us. Whereas the academy has been an intellectual space which has been complicit in the physical and intellectual justifications of nonwhite inferiority, it has also emerged as the space where it is now en vogue to question the normative valuations of whiteness. But, has anything changed? Are there any contradictions in such an ordering of knowledge? This paper examines how the original understandings of Blackness have been filtered into the ways of approaching and understanding African-descended people in the contemporary, neoliberal academy. Whether through the constructions of ethnic studies, the opening of the social sciences and humanities, or the development of liberal approaches to race within university administrative practices, it questions whether or not the academy has abdicated its role as a third pillar of racial capitalism.

  • The African Traveller and the Chinese Customs Official: Ethnic Minority
           Profiling at Border Check Points in Hong Kong and China?
    • Abstract: Stronger government-to-government relations between Africa and China in the first two decades of the twenty-first century have led to an increasing presence of African travellers at Chinese border check points. This is a novel situation involving cross-linguistic and cross-cultural communication dynamics that we need to understand from different research perspectives: linguistic, socio-economic, and legal, among others. Academic studies are already detailing some misunderstandings between Chinese customs, immigration and public security officials and African travellers and immigrants, who are clearly a visible minority group, both at border check points and in the wider Chinese communities (Bodomo 2010; Bodomo and Ma 2010; Bodomo 2012). A number of questions may be asked towards understanding the cross-cultural dynamics involved in this novel situation. What are Chinese immigration and customs officials’ experiences with African travellers and how do they see and handle this visible minority ethnic group? What are, in turn, African experiences with Chinese immigration, customs, and public security, officials both at border check points and in the wider Chinese communities in places like mainland China and Hong Kong? To answer these questions, a profile of the most frequent African visitors to Hong Kong and China is constructed, based on research among Africans in China, particularly Guangzhou. An outline is then made of what Africans think of Chinese customs and immigration officials as a whole, what kind of treatment they expect on arrival in China and how they prepare for it. It is then claimed that the most fundamental issue that causes friction, unhappiness and sometimes lack of cooperation from African travellers at immigration and customs check points in Hong Kong and other places in China is not so much due to linguistic and cultural misunderstanding as it is due to stereotyping and, in extreme cases, (un)conscious racial profiling. Finally, it is proposed that the best way for Hong Kong and other Chinese customs personnel to serve African immigrants is to apply immigration rules using systematically fair, just and colour-blind strategies.

  • Finding a Voice: an Allocentric Worldview to Guide Effective Reduction of
           Behavioral Health Disparities in African Americans
    • Abstract: Reduction and elimination of African American health disparities, a major challenge of our society for the past 20 years, has not been realized, although empirical studies, clinical practice and policy initiatives have made progress in their attempt to achieve this goal. Behavioral health risks are a significant component of such disparities. In this paper the authors maintain that the precise lack of understanding of how much behavioral health is influenced by worldview, and the importance of historical roots of African American people, and the challenges they face in the 21st century need to be explored and understood within the context of worldview. Specifically, the allocentric worldview should be considered an essential component in discussions surrounding behavioral health disparities. This paper argues that anything less than an historical assessment of the conditions leading up to behavioral health ills in African American urban and rural communities today will be incomplete, inaccurate and fall short of achieving the goals of reducing behavioral health disparities in this population. The purpose of this manuscript is to present the allocentric worldview and explore how its adoption is critical to behavioral health recovery among African Americans today. It is proposed that knowing and adopting a cultural and historical worldview that is indigenous to African descended peoples may significantly improve motivation and action among African Americans to adopt healthier behavioral health life styles.

  • Black Women’s Agenda Setting in the Maryland State Legislature
    • 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: 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: 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: 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: 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: 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.
