Multicultural Young Adult Literature as a Form of Counter-Storytelling
Hughes-Hassell, Sandra
Library Quarterly, v83 n3 p212-228 Jul 2013
Counter-storytelling is defined by critical race theory scholars as a method of telling the stories of those people whose experiences are not often told, including people of color, the poor, and members of the LGBTQ community. This article discusses multicultural young adult literature as a form of counter-storytelling, with an emphasis on how counter-stories challenge the stereotypes often held by the dominant culture, give voice to marginalized youth, and present the complexity of racial and ethnic identify formation.
