Abstract:

Adolescents face an identity crisis which needs to be favorably resolved in order for the individuals to become independent, effective adults; unfavorable resolution leads to confusion of ones adult sense of identity. African-American adolescents have a particularly complex task attempting favorable resolution due to enforced acculturation with views and concerns relating to American history, culture, educational systems, religious institutions, science, philosophy, literature, politics and law, which have little association with African backgrounds. African cultural artifacts and mentifacts would tend to facilitate a more favorable outcome of the identity crisis among African-American adolescents.
