Antoinette Wilson Friday Forum

Antoinette Wilson is a PhD candidate in Developmental Psychology. Her work investigates ways in which in-group members judge and validate racial authenticity (e.g., accusations of “acting White” and bias based on skin tone). Central to her research is exploring adolescents’ perceptions of “Who fits in?”, “Who is typical of our group”, and “Who is ‘really’ one of us?” Her dissertation research focuses on how two aspects of racial-ethnic typicality– appearance and behavior–relate to variation in peer belonging and stereotyping among African American adolescents and young adults. Wilson’s talk describes findings from this work and is titled “Who Do You Think You Are: The Role of Racial Typicality on In-group Belonging and Stereotyping among African American Youth”.

Keywords: Black identity, Stereotyping, Development, In-group Belonging
