Title: Attending College While Black: Neighborhood Diversity, Ethnic Identity, and the Perception of Racial Microaggressions

The presentation will demonstrate how today's neighborhood racial segregation negatively influences how Black youth are learning about race and their racial identities. It will outline how growing up in either homogeneous or diverse backgrounds affects not only racial socialization and ethnic identity, but also self-esteem, academic performance, college adjustment, and the ability to take the perspectives of others.
