How African Americans Judge the U.S. Legal System

James L. Gibson and Michael Nelson

  • A truly comprehensive study of black experiences with and attitudes toward legal authorities and institutions.
  • Makes use of major theoretical approaches, such as Legitimacy Theory, Social Identity Theory, theories of experiences with legal authorities, and theories of how the symbols of legal authority affect legal attitudes.
  • Considers not just attitudes toward the U.S. Supreme Court, but also the willingness to extend legitimacy to local legal institutions.
