Abstract:This study explored the relationships among length of residence, group identification (racial and ethnic identity) and race-related stress for a sample of Black Caribbean immigrants (n = 96). Participants were recruited through university student organizations, community establishments and snowball sampling. It was hypothesized that length of residence and racial identity would predict race-related stress, and that racial identity would mediate the relationship between length of residence and race-related stress. Regression analyses revealed that racial identity did not mediate the relationship between length of residence and race-related stress. However, length of residence was a significant predictor of cultural race-related stress. Further, racial identity approached significance as a unique predictor of cultural race-related stress. The implications of these and other findings for interventions and future research are discussed.
