Being Black (and) Immigrant Students: When Race, Ethnicity, and Nativity Collide
Mwangi, Chrystal A. George; English, Shelvia
International Journal of Multicultural Education, v19 n2 p100-130 2017
While Black immigrants share some of the racialized experiences of native-Black Americans, they also have distinctive experiences. U.S. education presents an important environment to investigate these experiences as immigrants have the fastest growing child population and these children are increasingly entering the education system. This paper engages a systematic review of the growing body of literature centering on Black immigrants across the U.S. P-20 pipeline (preschool through graduate school). Findings reveal that the presentation of Black immigrants is incomplete in terms of the frameworks and research designs used to examine their educational experiences, pointing to a larger issue of a single narrative concerning this group.
