Examined the effects of age on color preferences and self-color misidentification, while holding constant the time of exposure to a mixed (Black and White) social environment in a study of 168 Ethiopian- and Israeli-born preschool and 1st- and 2nd-grade children. Results confirm the universality of White color and light skin color biases as well as self-color misidentification among Black preschool children. Theoretical and practical implications of these findings are discussed within the framework of developmental and general psychological theory.
