"Compartiendo Nuestras Historias": Five "Testimonios" of Schooling and Survival
Alarcon, Wanda; Cruz, Cindy; Jackson, Linda Guardia; Prieto, Linda; Rodriguez-Arroyo, Sandra
Journal of Latinos and Education, v10 n4 p369-381 2011
This storytelling begins with a positioning of why and how we use "testimonio" as part of a larger project of social justice and transformative pedagogies. In this collective "testimonio," 5 working-class Latina scholars tell the stories of their struggles to overcome the challenges of language and assimilation, of gender discrimination and racism, of the violence of patriarchy, and of the experience of being treated as an "alien" in one's own country. (Contains 1 footnote.)
