Narrating Identities: Schools as Touchstones of Endemic Marginalization
Simmons, Charlana; Lewis, Cameron; Larson, Joanne
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v42 n2 p121-133 Jun 2011
This article examines a racial awareness activity conducted as part of a community-wide change initiative at which we found that the majority of racial identity events occurred in schools. Given the prevalence of schools in participant narratives, we argue that schooling is a societal marker, or what we will call a touchstone, of racial identity formation and marginalization that is enacted on an interactional level and that reflected historical and present day relationships.
