The purpose of this research is to examine the role that selected demographic and background factors play in identifying the attitudes that African American college students express towards individuals with disabilities. Attitudes can come from variety of sources such as the student's own culture (Belgrave, 1998; Kambon, 1992; Grand & Strohmer, 1983; Olkin & Howson, 1994); gender of the individual with the disability (Alston & Mccowan, 1994; Boylan, 1991; Cole, 1998); and the type of disability that individual has (Boylan, 1991 ). Other attitudes can come from society.
