Exploring three conceptualizations of African-centered worldview in predicting racial identity attitudes in a sample of African American college students
MetadataShow full item record
The proposed study will investigate the dimensions of the relationship between three conceptualizations of African-centered worldview (ACWV) and racial identity (RI) attitudes in a sample of African American college students. A canonical correlation analysis will be conducted to explain the relationship between the ACWV variable set and the RI attitudes variable set. It is hypothesized there will be several significant correlations and multiple linear correlations (i.e., dimensions) between the variable sets. Specifically, it is hypothesized that endorsement of each conceptualization of ACWV will be negatively related to Pre-encounter RI attitudes. It is also hypothesized that each conceptualization of ACWV will differentially predict identity salient RI attitudes. Implications and limitations of this study will be discussed.
