Diane Hughes, assistant professor of psychology at New York University, analyzed data from the MacArthur Study of Mid-Life Diversity, a study of 1,500 adults from four minority groups living in New York City and Chicago. One focus of the study is the extent to which ethnic minorities experience prejudice and discrimination in the workplace and community. She completed several papers examining the effects of this exposure on parents' psychological and physical health and on the nature of their communications with children about race and intergroup relations.
