This provides a more objective record of results (ibid., 137). The question of controlling or non-controlling feeding patterns and their effects on obesity are especially interesting to this author due to the potential for heading off later obesity issues. The resource will reflect on the class presentation by documenting the immediate impacts of early parenting styles among African-American parents upon obesity issues.
This resource will definitely be useful in creating the presentation because it presents a proactive opportunity to intervene and improve parenting skills and child welfare.

The purpose of the article is to measure...
The present study research hypothesis examines to what extent neighborhood structural disadvantages predict about college aspirations held by African-American youth. The results support the hypothesis that concentrated neighborhood disadvantages exert significant influences upon college aspirations, even when accounting for the micro-level context. With regard to the characteristics of the sample, the findings suggest that the youth that were studied that were living in disadvantaged contexts had lower college aspirations.

African-American Art The art of African-Americans became a powerful medium for social and self-expression. Visual arts including sculpture carried with it political implications related to colonialism, oppression, and liberation.

Sometimes, his analyses appeared to conflate "family" and "household" in a more incomprehensible manner rather than illumination. This might be
African-Americans in the U.S. Armed Forces This research paper proposes to discuss the importance of African-American soldiers in the United States military. It will do so from a decidedly comprehensive approach which highlights their contributions to the major martial endeavors the U.S. has undertaken since its inception. In examining the history of these soldiers within America, this paper proposes to also deconstruct the motives which galvanized African-American soldiers to enlist in

While African-Americans have adopted and incorporated many cultures into their own (not unlike any other cultural group in America) that in no way signifies that African-American's have no culture or history of their own. "Black people have no history, no heroes, no
