Resisting Racism: Sociopolitical Development of Black Youth

EPSY Department Speaker Series

April 7, 2022

12:30 PM - 1:30 PM


Online via Zoom

Black youth are constantly exposed to racism which affects their development. Scholars propose that sociopolitical development assists Black youth in processing and responding to racism and creating meaningful transformative change in their communities. Further, Black youth’s sociopolitical development is informed by their racial beliefs and experiences. In this presentation, Alexis Briggs will discuss conceptual and empirical work addressing the sociopolitical development of Black youth. She will present findings from a latent profile analysis that addresses how Black youth’s sociopolitical beliefs and behaviors co-occur with racial beliefs and experiences. Alexis will conclude with a discussion of ongoing and future research, including how both qualitative and prospective studies can serve to promote and support the sociopolitical development of Black youth.
