Martinez, Theresa A.
Race, Gender & Class, v9 n4 p158-76 2002
Suggests that W.E.B. Du Bois' concept of the "double-consciousness" and Gloria Anzaldua's concept of the "mestiza consciousness" are significant forms of oppositional culture and consciousness. Asserts that their two concepts are linked and nuanced ideas that describe interlocking systems of oppression spanning two centuries and arguably binding the experiences of African Americans and Hispanic Americans.
