Abstract: Throughout American history, African Americans most diligently fought for the right to fight and serve in America’s armed forces. The historic connection between military service and American citizenship is well documented and provides the foundation to the African American quest for civil rights and the social movement that follows. While military service and training is linked to the fight for freedom and social equality, I argue, it also reflects how African American soldiers and proponents broaden this experience to include literacy and educational opportunities which further served to strengthen and legitimize concepts of masculine identity and manhood embedded in the legacy to bear arms and the civic virtues of education. This multidimensional pursuit of citizenship and social equality becomes intertwined in the late nineteenth century and manifests itself in the establishment of military training programs at Black Colleges and Universities.
Take Your Place among the Soldiers of Your Country, a Man among Men will examine how African American soldiers during the civil war established the link between military service and the communal pursuit of literacy in the black community as a way to empower African Americans in their claim for citizenship rights. In addition, military preparedness and training in the South challenged the docile image of the black man and reinforced a masculine self-identity embraced through military discipline and a strict code of gentlemen’s conduct. This paper will also demonstrate how Historically Black Colleges such as Hampton Institute and Tuskegee Institute established military training programs in the late nineteenth century and become models for subsequent programs as Negro Land Grant institutions were being created throughout the South.

Abstract: For the past 100 years, scholars have studied interlocking directors -- the individuals who sit as directors on more than one corporate board (e.g., Brandeis, 1916; Useem, 1984; Burris, 1992; Staples, 2013). The study of interlockers allows for a way to study diversity in the higher levels of the corporate world. Research has shown an increase over the past few decades in the number of white women, African Americans, Latinos and Asian Americans who sit on corporate boards and those who have been appointed CEOs of Fortune 500 corporations (Zweigenhaft and Domhoff, 2006, 2011). This study extends that previous work on diversity by looking in depth at the 4605 men and women who sat on Fortune 500 boards or who were members of one of four key policy groups (the Business Roundtable, the Business Council, the Brookings Institution, and the Council of Foreign Relations) in 2010. The focus is on the extent to which there is gender, racial and ethnic diversity among corporate interlockers, among those who sit on key policy boards, and those who are on both corporate boards and on key policy groups, and what these data for 2010 tell us about trends over time.

Assessing Coordinated Activities among Women's Groups in the United Kingdom, France and Germany" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Midwest Political Science Association 67th Annual National Conference, The Palmer House Hilton, Chicago, IL, <Not Available>. 2019-11-22 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: This study explores the choice to engage in coordinated activity and the degree to which the gendered nature of political institutions has an impact on the mobilization strategies of women's groups. In so doing, we explore whether or not the opportunity structure is 'gendered,' producing different outcomes for women's groups than for other social groups. Since we know that coordinated activity can be advantageous for the achievement of group goals, any differences for women's groups are significant. In addition, this study asks if women's groups coordinate activities to advance strategic interests, those that are vested in long-term transformations of gender relations and hierarchies and are concerned with changing the underlying inequities in the prevailing institutional arrangement, or to advance practical interests, those that "do not themselves challenge the prevailing forms of gender subordination…" (Molyneux 1995, 284). This study also asks if the choice to engage in coordinated activities is mediated by issue focus or 'type' of group. Both domestic and transnational/supranational acts of coordination are examined and results focus on the necessity of a feminized interpretation of the POS.

Abstract: Within the context of a theory of perceived group interest this study examines the additiive and interactive effects of minority status and social class in explaining relatively privileged AFrican Americans', Latinos', and Asians' support for income-targeted and race/ethnic targeted redistributive policies. Findings from a sample utilizing th 1994 Multi city Study of Urban INequality and the 200 National Election Study suggesy that across both types of policies perceived allegiances to both fellow racial/ethnic group members and the middle class account for the predomiance of joint minority/social class effects and levels of policy support that are intermediate between co-racial/ethnic group working class and the White middle class. The implications of the findings for further research in the area of investigation are discussed

"Concurrent and Longitudinal Links among Acculturation, Acculturative Stress, Ethnic Identity, and Psychosocial Health among Latina/o Adolescents" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the NLPA Biennial Conference, The Heldrich Hotel, New Brunswick, NJ, <Not Available>. 2019-11-22 <>
Publication Type: Abstract
Abstract: Latina/o adolescent adjustment links acculturation processes to experiences of acculturative stress, highlighting pathways to maladjustment via acculturative stress. Positive, coherent ethnic identification is posited as a protective factor in youth adjustment and acculturation processes. However, studies have not simultaneously assessed acculturation, acculturative stress, and ethnic identification, as they link to each other and to psychosocial outcomes. The current study examines associations among all three and youth reports of school belonging and delinquent behaviors, both concurrently and longitudinally across one year.

Participants were 206 Latina/o high school students (121 females, 84 males) – mean age
= 15.79 years. Approximately 75% were of Mexican descent, the remaining 25% were from other Central and South American countries. One year later, 107 adolescents completed follow up assessment (65 females, 42 males; mean age 16.41 years). Participants completed an online survey at their school which included the Societal, Attitudinal, Familial, and Environmental Acculturative Stress Scale (SAFE), the Brief Acculturation Rating Scale for Mexican-Americans-II (ARSMA-II), the Multiethnic Identity Measure (MEIM), the delinquency scale of the Youth Self Report, and the Psychological Sense of School Belonging Scale.

Results indicated that acculturative stress was significantly and moderately linked to
delinquent behaviors and school belonging for males at Time 1 and Time 2 (r = -.44 and -.32 for
school belonging; .36 and .33 for delinquent behaviors). Acculturative stress was linked to
school belonging for females (Time 1 r = -.22; Time 2 r = -.31). The affirmation/belonging scale
of the MEIM was related to delinquency (r = -.20) and school belonging (r = .20) for females at
Time 1, and the Anglo Orientation scale of the ARSMA-II was related to school belonging for
females at Time 2 (r = .30). For males, Mexican Orientation was linked to school belonging at
Time 1 (r = -.23) and Anglo Orientation was linked to delinquency at Time 2 (r = -.37).

Few longitudinal links emerged between the acculturation and ethnic identification measures and psychosocial health. Females’ Anglo Orientation was associated with school belonging longitudinally (r = .40). Further, there was stability across time in each measure of acculturation and ethnic identification. Correlations between Time 1 scores on the ARSMA, SAFE, and MEIM were significantly correlated with Time 2 scores on the same scales. However, there were very few significant links among the acculturation, acculturative stress, and ethic identification variables. For example, acculturative stress was linked concurrently with higher Mexican Orientation and lower Anglo Orientation for males, but no longitudinal links were observed. Also for males, Mexican Orientation was linked longitudinally to MEIM scores. No significant links were observed for females among acculturation, acculturative stress, and ethnic identification.

Findings support previous research emphasizing the negative correlates of acculturative stress for both male and female adolescents, and for females suggested a protective function of ethnic identity exploration/affirmation. However, the absence of longitudinal effects of acculturative stress and the negligible relationships among acculturation, acculturative stress, and ethnic identity suggests that additional research is necessary to understand the roots, stability, and protective factors against acculturative stress.
