This book examines how black children who grow up in an impoverished environment construct their social reality, and why this process is a particulary critical factor in their perception and creation of self. It argues that black disadvantaged children develop a lifestyle and adopt values based on an identity grounded in racism, inequality, violence and poverty. "Constructing Social Relaity: Self Portraits of poor Black Adolescents" makes a valuable contribution to the scholarship by investigating the phenomena of poverty from cognitive, linguistic, and experiential persepctives in the lives of disadvantaged black adolescents.
