Abstract

Current research lacks holistic understanding of African American trust, and why it differs from the trust of other ethnic/ racial groups. In order to better understand why this is, I will explore how African Americans in underserved and impoverished neighborhoods determine which organizations and institutions to trust. My study finds that the cause of erosion of trust within Englewood may be linked to minimal fiduciary trust between residents and city officials and administration. Further, my study finds that the race of an individual was not significant in determining whether Englewood residents trusted them.
