Taking a Diasporic Stance: Puerto Rican Mothers Educating Children in a Racially Integrated Neighborhood
Rolon-Dow, Rosalie
Diaspora, Indigenous, and Minority Education, v4 n4 p268-284 2010
This article presents the perspectives of second-generation Puerto Rican mothers as they discuss their experiences educating their children in a working class, lower-middle class, racially diverse neighborhood. The article examines the racialization processes that the women and their families face, despite experiencing geographic and socioeconomic mobility. The analysis demonstrates how diaspora stances are produced by the women as they foster Puerto Rican cultural practices and identities with their children and as they negotiate the schooling experiences of their children. (Contains 13 footnotes.)
