Dr. Malik Boykin Talk
November 14, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Join us on November 14th at 4 PM in 338 for a talk by Malik Boykin.
Title: Hierarchy preference and group status impact racial identities and intergroup attitudes=
My research addresses the dynamics between members of minority and majority groups. Historically, this conversation has focused on understanding the attitudes of majority group members and their impact on minority group members. I incorporate this perspective while seeking to expand our understanding of individual differences in the attitudes of minority group members. This talk highlights two interrelated aspects of my research program. First, I discuss individual differences in Black people’s preferences for group inequality and the impact of these preferences on racial identity attitudes. Next, I discuss how perceived threats to majority group members’ societal status can inform majority group member attitudes towards education institutions designed for the upward status mobility of Black people. Lastly, I will discuss future directions for these lines of reasoning.
