About this book

This volume addresses the underlying intersections of race, class, and gender on immigrant girls’ experiences living in the US. It examines the impact of acculturation and assimilation on Ethiopian girls’ academic achievement, self-identity, and perception of beauty. The authors employ Critical Race Theory, Critical Race Feminism, and Afrocentricity to situate the study and unpack the narratives shared by these newcomers as they navigate social contexts rife with racism, xenophobia, and other forms of oppression. Lastly, the authors examine the implications of Ethiopian immigrant identities and experiences within multicultural education, policy development, and society.
