  • Amiri Baraka’s Theatre of Ritual: from Staging Rituals of Unfulfilment
           to Performing Rituals of Political Praxis
    • Authors: samy Azouz
      Abstract: The plays Dutchman and The Slave show the transition from rituals of the scapegoat, through rituals of the ascendance of the new king, to rituals of initiation. From the cult of erosion of the self to the rhetoric of self-affirmation, Slave Ship and The Motion of History highlight the progression to rituals of revolt and protest. This change of staging rituals of incompletion and loss to staging rituals of political protest indicates Baraka’s doubts about veiled bohemian values and indefinite avant-gardism. Residing a middle ground, Black Nationalism has first meant for the dramatist individualism then belonging and engagement in the black resistance for civil and civic freedoms and liberties. Whereas ritual in Dutchman and The Slave convey unfulfilment and ruin, the kinaesthetic activity in the later plays bring action and agitation to the centre stage. Plays such as Slave Ship and The Motion of History picture joint action and expose large-scale movement and mobilization. This shift from a stance of apathy and political blindness to sociopolitical militancy underscores Baraka’s progression from bohemian precepts through nationalist leanings to leftist politics.

  • African American Parents and Their High-Achieving Students: Issues of
           Race, Class, and Community in the College Choice Process
    • Authors: Thandeka K. Chapman; Frances Contreras; Eligio Martinez
      Abstract: Although a significant body of research clearly identifies parents as one of the strongest influences in the student college choice process, researchers have limited information about the interactions between African American students and parents during this process, and about what African American parents value in institutions of higher education. African American parental behavior resonates with the general literature on parental influence and involvement; however, African American college choice criteria also reflect the racialized experiences and identities of African American families in the USA. This paper sheds light on how African American parents navigate the college choice process with their children, and it contributes to a relatively small body of knowledge focused on culturally constructed African American parental influence and school engagement.

  • A Survey of Retirement Readiness Among African-Americans
    • Authors: John H. Young; Crystal R. Hudson; Edward L. Davis
      Pages: 551 - 566
      Abstract: This study addresses African-Americans’ retirement readiness and the factors that contribute to African Americans being prepared or not prepared for retirement. Specifically, this study explores the relationship between educated African-Americans’ financial literacy and their retirement readiness. To analyze this relationship, a binary logistic regression model was fitted to primary data collected from graduates, professors, and business professionals associated with a liberal arts university located in the southeastern USA. The researchers found that educated African-Americans who are more financially literate are more likely to be ready for retirement versus educated African-Americans who are less financially literate. This finding suggests that education does not equate to financial literacy. Moreover, millennials are more likely to be prepared for retirement compared to other age groups, and those who are single and those who do not work full time are less likely to be prepared for retirement.

  • The Experiences of Black Police Officers Who Have Been Racially Profiled:
           an Exploratory Research Note
    • Authors: John Paul; Michael Birzer
      Pages: 567 - 584
      Abstract: When Black police officers take off their uniform, do they become the target of racial profiling' The purpose of this paper is to report on how minority officers experience racial profiling when out of uniform. It is difficult to reject the accounts of police officers who say that they have been subjected to racial profiling because they, as experts in the field, well understand the policy, procedures, and intricacies of police work. Further, they have much to say about the implementation and continued harms enabled by the practice of profiling. While this work is exploratory in nature, we nonetheless illuminate the following themes: for those who have experienced profiling, there is considerable disbelief by the on duty officer that a Black individual is actually an officer when out of uniform; that Black officers are subject to the same historical racial stereotypes of criminality; and that officers (when out of uniform) are subject to being seen as “interlopers” in predominately “white spaces” and are apt to be aggressively confronted by citizens and police alike for violating these real and symbolic spaces.

  • Addressing Racial Discrimination in the 1930s: Using a Historical Case
           Study to Inform Contemporary Social Justice Efforts
    • Authors: Charles Senteio; Kristen Matteucci
      Pages: 621 - 642
      Abstract: In this historical case study, we use the realism–idealism framework to analyze how three National Conference of Social Work (NCSW) leaders differed in their social justice advocacy to address racial segregation during the 1930s. We argue that advocacy should welcome approaches along the realism–idealism spectrum. Navigating internal difference and diverse viewpoints enables organizations to be more effective in their social justice advocacy. Managing internal disagreement enables organizations to be more effective externally. Allowing space for negotiation and voices of dissent is necessary to effectively address persistent, contemporary social justice issues like racial discrimination and exclusion.

  • Self-Rated Health, Discrimination, and Racial Group Identity: the
           Consequences of Ethnicity and Nativity Among Black Americans
    • Authors: C. André Christie-Mizell; Erika T. A. Leslie; Brittany N. Hearne
      Pages: 643 - 664
      Abstract: In this study, we examine how ethnic heterogeneity and nativity shape the relationships among self-rated health, discrimination, and racial group identity for a representative sample of African Americans, U.S.-born Caribbean Blacks, and foreign-born Caribbean Blacks (National Survey of American Life; N = 4091). Our study includes two forms of discrimination, major lifetime discrimination and day-to-day discrimination, as well as two forms of racial group identity, closeness to other Blacks and Black group evaluation. Closeness to other Blacks improves the self-rated health of U.S.-born Caribbean Blacks who reported experiencing high levels of major discrimination. Black group evaluation improved the health of foreign-born Caribbean Blacks, who reported low levels of major discrimination, and African Americans, with high levels of major discrimination. Finally, for both foreign-born Caribbean Blacks and African Americans, who experience high discrimination, Black group evaluation weakens the influence of day-to-day discrimination on self-rated health.

  • Historical Disaster and the New Urban Crisis
    • Authors: Floyd W. Hayes
      Abstract: Conventional studies of urban poverty largely blame African Americans for their impoverished situation and the consequent social difficulties that arise there from. This paper confronts and indicts that perspective. Examining the historic dehumanization process that shaped African America, the present study argues that it served as the framework for how whites justified their racist and violent treatment of slaves and their African American descendants. It was this same racist theory and practice that led to the construction of racialized oppressive urban ghettos that became the economically impoverished domicile for urban black people. Therefore, poor African Americans have been caught in a cauldron of circumstances not of their own making, but with which they have had to cope and struggle.

  • Can the Achievement Gap Be Linked to Differences in the Development of
           Naming Strategies' A Comparison of African American and European
           American Children’s Responses on a Picture-Labeling Task
    • Authors: Jennifer Bloomquist
      Abstract: In this study, working- and middle-class African American and European American adults and children aged two through six were shown a series of pictures including “normal” referents and unfamiliar combinations which they were asked to identify. There were both age- and class-dependent differences in terms of naming behaviors but there were none according to ethnicity. When these results are interpreted in consideration of the still-widening achievement gap, it is clear that linguists and educators continue to face the same issue: there remains a societal insistence on furthering the primacy of middle class linguistic structures and language behaviors which serves to maintain a cycle of educational failure for African American working-class children.

  • A Review of “Stokely: A Life” Through the Lens of Kwame
           Ture’s Autobiography
    • Authors: Rhone Fraser
      Abstract: There are significant discrepancies between the narratives of the life of Kwame Ture (1941–1998) as told by himself and that told in the biography “Stokely: A Life” written by historian Peniel Joseph. The discrepancies are concerned with privileging group-centered leadership and hierarchical leadership which Joseph claims Ture promoted.

  • Challenges Faced by African American Golfers Pursuing Professional Careers
    • Authors: Anthony Rosselli; John N. Singer
      Abstract: The purpose of this study was to give voice to a small group of African American male and female aspiring professional golfers in efforts to illuminate the challenges they face in pursuing professional playing careers in the United States (U.S.). Utilizing a basic interpretive qualitative research design (Merriam 2002), semi-structured interviews with eight African American male and one African American female golfers who were pursuing professional playing careers on the Professional Golfers Association (PGA) and Ladies Professional Golfers Association (LPGA) Tours, respectively, were conducted. Findings from our analysis of their narratives suggest the following major challenges made their pursuit of a professional playing career difficult: (a) these golfers lacked the social networks/connections and financial resources, and (b) they were not taken seriously or viewed by powerful stakeholders in golf as legitimate golfers. Contributions to the literature and practical implications are discussed.

  • Implicit Racial Bias and Police Use of Lethal Force: Justifiable Homicide
           or Potential Discrimination'
    • Authors: James H. Price; Erica Payton
      Abstract: Implicit bias seems to be a universal primitive function of all brains. Police officers have been found to have near universal implicit bias against racial and ethnic minorities. This does not mean that discriminatory behavior (explicit bias) has to inevitably follow. Reports of police use of lethal force have found that African Americans are far more likely to be shot and killed than their numbers in the population would predict. The actual number of individuals killed by police is not certain since the reporting of lethal force by police departments is voluntary. Evidence suggests that appropriate training of police can help reduce any tendency for police officers to exhibit discriminatory lethal violence against African Americans. We recommend the following changes: required reporting of all police shootings and the circumstances surrounding the shootings, counter training for implicit bias for all police officers, organizational policy and legislative reforms for law enforcement, and more diligent prosecution of inappropriate use of lethal force by police officers.

  • When Faith and Music Intersect: the Spiritual Evolution of a Musical
           Genius
    • Authors: Tracey M. Lewis-Giggetts
      Abstract: Over the course of Prince’s legendary career, there were some clear points of transition—points where his faith and musical genius intersected. Prince’s music often reflected his spiritual journey, and despite his conversion to the Jehovah’s Witnesses in the late 90s and early 2000s, he could never entirely shake the sexuality and sensuality he was known and loved for in the mainstream. In a way that worked, Prince found ways to merge his spiritual seeking with his sexual expressions in the music. This essay argues that while some in society, particularly legalists across many faiths, may attempt to categorize Prince’s wrestlings as a contradiction, in truth, this duality of his represents the way many artists—Black artists, in particular—reconcile the nuances of their creative work with any faith traditions or spiritual beliefs they may have. In the end, these beautiful complexities were a critical part of Prince’s spiritual and artistic evolution.
