individual identities of inner-city children

Posted By: Jennifer Monroe on October 1, 2001
I'm at the beginning stages of a research project and am looking for any literature anyone may know about that addresses the tendency to lump all inner-city children into one group. Let me try to explain that a little better...I mean the idea that many inner-city are portrayed as ALL having a set group of characteristics and are rarely represented as a unique individuals. Each child has an individual story, good or bad, and the tendency is to lump them together as all coming from single parent families with drug problems. Is there anything out there that you have heard of? Anything in particular I should check out?

Thanks a lot!!
