Abstract

The current study examined the role of racial identity as a mediator and moderator in the relationship between racial socialization and resiliency for African American students. Campus racial climate was used a as a covariate in the hierarchical multiple regression models. Results indicate that racial identity was not a mediator or moderator in the relationship between racial socialization and resiliency, however, there was a main effect found for Self-Hatred and racial socialization. Participants endorsing greater Self-Hatred reported lower levels of resiliency and those higher on racial socialization reported higher levels of resiliency. Potential theoretical explanations for the findings are discussed, along with implications for practitioners and the strengths and limitations of the study.
