"Negro Teen-Agers Studied in Report."
New York Times, December 30, 1967, p. 21.
This study (called "Black Youth in a Southern Metropolis") of African-American
teen-agers was the first of its kind since 1940. The study involved a polling of 688 high
school students (most between ages 14 and 18) in the Atlanta, Georgia area. Among the
findings of the study: 1) Just over 50% believed that non-violence was the way for
African-Americans to solve their problems 2) "About half" opposed African-Americans
fighting in the Vietnam War.
