Somali Adolescents' Negotiation of Religious and Racial Bias in and out of School
Bigelow, Martha
Theory Into Practice, v47 n1 p27-34 Jan 2008
This article explores the issues of race and religion as they pertain to adolescent Somali immigrants and their lives at school, among their families, and in their communities. Research from a number of contexts offers a range of perceptions, held by Somali youth and adults, not commonly available in the media. Multiple suggestions are offered to educators for engaging youth in conversations about race and religion in ways that will make Muslim students feel more welcome at school and help all students understand racial and religious identity, as well as the harm that racial and religious bias can cause. (Contains 4 notes.)
