Exploring a Moral World
Paperback. 68 pages. Dimensions: 8.7in. x 5.9in. x 0.2in.Moral lives of low-income African American youth are explored in this thesis. In semi-structured interviews the youth, who are a part of an after school enrichment program, talk about their most significant moral dilemmas. Belying the negative stereotypical image of youth from their socioeconomic and ethnic background they meet the programs requirements of maintaining high grades and a good behavioral record. Using the language of justice and care from Kohlbergs (1969) Justice Theory of Moral Development and Gilligans (1982) Ethic of Care theory the moral elements in their narratives are identified. Applying Blasis (1983)Self-Model theory to these moral elements, over half the participants are found to have established a moral identity characterized by resistance. Those who possess this moral identity accept expectations made of them by society and avoid behavior that would make them like the negative stereotype of youth from their background. Further, it is found that such resistance is arrived at through a process of introspection, a finding that fits Durkheims (1925) definition of moral action. This item ships from multiple locations.
