“My Neighborhood Ain’t Never Done Nothing for Me”: Using Photo Elicitation to Understanding How Inner City Youth Identify with Their Neighborhoods

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Black youth residing in urban neighborhoods face various disadvantages due to high rates of poverty. The consequences of living in continuous economic crisis include decreased neighborhood resources, which risks their academic, social, and psychological wellness. Utilizing an ethnographic qualitative approach, this study explores the relationship ten 7th-12th graders from a Midwestern city develop with their neighborhoods. Over a four-week process, participants were provided with disposal cameras, and were responsible for taking pictures within their neighborhoods, journaling their experiences, and participating in two focus group interviews. Findings suggest that while participants acknowledge the negative characteristics (i.e. violence, crime, decreased educational opportunity, etc.) that exist within their neighborhoods, they do not allow these negative factors to limit their aspirations for successful life outcomes. This demonstrates that while neighborhoods may play a role in perceived opportunities for these teenagers, there are ways to navigate these structures to promote the well-being of these youth.
