Abstract :

The purpose of this study was to explore the relationships between race-related stress, identity, and well-being among African Americans. A total of 196 African American community members and college students participated in this study. Consistently throughout the analyses, social class, education and ethnic identity emerged as significant predictors of well-being for African Americans with higher social class, more education, and stronger ethnic identity associated with higher quality of life, greater self-esteem and greater life satisfaction.
