Cultural (De)Coding and Racial Identity among Women of the African Diaspora in U.S. Adult Higher Education
Murray-Johnson, Kayon K.
Adult Learning, v24 n2 p55-62 May 2013
Over time, research has suggested there are sometimes tensions arising from differences in the way African Americans and Black Caribbean immigrants in the United States perceive each other as part of the African diaspora. In this autoethnographic study, I explore personal experiences with cross-cultural misperceptions between Black female students in three U.S. higher education settings. I use critical race feminism and dialogue education to tell my story, analyzing my encounters and cultural frame of reference and its relationship to Black identity in the United States, and calling for increased dialogue between and among diverse Black females in adult education settings.
