African-American conservatism : a longitudinal and comparative study /

by Lewis, Angela Katrina.

Abstract (Summary)
The proposed research addresses the following questions: “Have African- Americans become more conservative over the last 25 years?” While numerous commentators have noted the existence of a Black conservative group, heretofore, none have attempted to document this phenomenon empirically.
