Symbols in the Strange Fruit Seeds: What "The Talk" Black Parents Have with Their Sons Tells Us about Racism
DiAquoi, Raygine
Harvard Educational Review, v87 n4 p512-537 Win 2017
In this article, Raygine DiAquoi explores the temporality of "the talk" Black parents have with their sons, analyzing the way the messages they share with their sons about racism reflect sociohistorical changes around issues of race. Over the course of a year, DiAquoi conducted a qualitative investigation of the content of the messages seventeen families shared with their adolescent sons about discrimination. She asserts that the similarities between the conversations families have today and those had by Black families living during the pre-"Brown v. Board of Education" era beg critical analysis of the features of our current racial climate.
