LARGEST EVER NATIONAL YOUTH SURVEY ILLUMINATES THE ATTITUDES, EXPERIENCES, HOPES AND EXPECTATIONS OF YOUNG AFRICAN AMERICANS
The Black Youth Project, under the direction of Dr. Cathy Cohen of the University of Chicago, today unveiled the findings of a comprehensive survey of the experiences and attitudes of young African Americans. The national survey questioned 1,590 African American, White and Hispanic young people, ages 15-25, on everything from pre-marital sex to their beliefs about the “color-blind” society. The data present one of the most complete pictures to date of a generation that finds itself in the center of many of the country’s political and social debates.
