The Time Is Now! Talking with African American Youth about College
Carter, Stephanie Power; Damico, James S.; Kumasi-Johnson, Kafi
Voices from the Middle, v16 n2 p47-53 Dec 2008
This article explores our work with African American youth in an after-school community literacy program. We examine how a group of these students used a set of Internet-based technology tools to evaluate whether or not a group of colleges would affirm their cultural identity and help them succeed. What we learned from the students has caused us to rethink the relationships between college exploration, access, cultural identity, and students' potential academic success.
