Your self-concept defines your personal identity and impacts every thought, feeling and action you take. Self-concept is largely a reflection of the reactions you perceive of others towards you. Therefore, what you believe about yourself is largely derived from what you believe others think of you. So, what does this mean if you internalize common stereotypes about the Black women?
