Title of Presentation
The impact of ethnic-racial socialization messages on Black emerging adults’ ethnic-racial identity

Short Abstract
As ethnic-racial minority populations become increasingly diverse in the United States, youth must develop skills to live their everyday lives within a multicultural context. Successful navigation of this multicultural context is at least partially influenced by the ability of youth to develop a strong ethnic-racial identity (ERI). Further, with an increased understanding of self comes deeper exploration of the sources of ethnic-racial socialization (ERS) messages that influence ERI.

This study focuses on the social context and influences from diverse socialization agents on Black youth ERI development (also known as nigrescence – “the process of becoming Black”). The purpose of this study is to better understand the impact of various types of ERS messages received from various socialization agents throughout adolescence and emerging adulthood on Black ERI during emerging adulthood.
