Gang Violence And Latino Youth In Chicano Literature: The Loss Of Potential, Maria C. Lara Apr 2005

Gang Violence And Latino Youth In Chicano Literature: The Loss Of Potential, Maria C. Lara

McNair Scholars Research Journal

This literature analysis examines the representation of violence in Chicano literature, in particular, gang violence. The violent culture of gangs in the Chicano community is an essential aspect of the works of Luis Rodriguez, Mona Ruiz, Yxta Maya Murray, and Alejandro Morales. By examining the lives of the protagonists in a selection of works by these authors, this analysis aims to determine how gang violence affects the Latino youth portrayed in the texts. The analysis reveals that Latino youth who live in communities where violent gang activities are a part of everyday life often end up joining gangs. The characters ...


Crossing Borderlands: The Face Of Chicana Border Literature, Irene Ruiz Apr 2005

Crossing Borderlands: The Face Of Chicana Border Literature, Irene Ruiz

McNair Scholars Research Journal

Chicana literature details the trials and tribulations of Chicana life at the borderlands of the United States and Mexico. In particular it focuses on different challenges Chicana women face at the borderlands they must cross. While borderlands are usually represented as physical, many are not. Using Sandra Cisneros’ Women Hollering Creek, Denise Chavez’s Loving Pedro Infante, Maria Amparo Escandon’s Esperanza’s Box of Saints, and Alicia Gaspar de Alba’s, The Mystery of Survival, I will explore several common themes that relate to Chicana identity and the struggles that they must go through to overcome these barriers. I ...

Honoring The Elders: Interviews With Two Lakota Men, Deborah E. Bowen

The Journal of Sociology & Social Welfare

The beliefs that honoring the elders, commitment to family, and the connectedness to all creation are paramount are intrinsic to Lakota culture. Two Lakota elders, Albert White Hat, Sr. and Sylvan White Hat, Sr. are interviewed for this article. They express their concerns with major social justice issues, and offer hope for future generations of Lakota children. A strengths-based perspective of social work practice is compared to traditional Lakota customs and practices.

Jack Hopkins' Civil War, Peter C. Vermilyea Jan 2005

Jack Hopkins' Civil War, Peter C. Vermilyea

Adams County History

In the 1862 Pennsylvania College album there is a photograph of John Hopkins, who that year was entering his fifteenth year of service as the college's janitor. In one student's book, the portrait of Hopkins jokingly refers to him as the school's "vice president." This appellation speaks volumes about the life of the African-American custodian, for while it was clearly made in jest as a token of the students' genuine affection for Hopkins, it symbolizes the gulf between the white students and the black janitor. It goes without saying that the students found the picture humorous because ...


Retranslating Differences, Aaron Monty Jan 2005

Retranslating Differences, Aaron Monty

Cleveland State Law Review

The immense diversity among Latinos has begun to separate instead of unite us, making it difficult for the Latino "voice" to be articulated. prevents homogenous connections from being made among the divergent people that comprise the Latino community. These homogenous connections are necessary in order for the truth about the Latino perspective to be understood: It is as diverse as the people from whom it comes.


Growing Up African-American, Christian, And Female: The Dichotomies Of My Life, Kemba Gray Jan 2005

Growing Up African-American, Christian, And Female: The Dichotomies Of My Life, Kemba Gray

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

In this paper I explore the roller coaster ride that has been my life. This was not a roller coaster ride that left me dizzy and sick to my stomach, it has done something quite different. The ride has left me clear-headed and stronger in terms of the way I look at the world and how I fit into it. Living with dichotomies for most of my life has created in me a character that is unique, and therefore I am eager to share it. I have always looked at myself as a Zebra, an animal that lives in constant ...

An Analysis Of Media Perceptions Regarding African Americans In Gettsyburg Throughout 1963, Brendan M. Shelley

The Gettysburg Historical Journal

On Monday, September 28, 1863, the Compiler, Gettysburg Pennsylvania’s Democratic newspaper, published an article taken from the Sussex Messenger about a black man forcing himself onto a white woman. The girl, daughter of Mr. Daniel Messick, was going from her father’s house which was just outside of the town limits to a neighbor’s home when she was suddenly assaulted by a black man. The man jumped out from behind thick brush and grabbed the girl. A struggle ensued and the assailant ripped off the girl’s clothing and put his hand over her mouth in order to ...


The Albany Movement And The Origin Of Freedom Songs, Nicole Lenart Jan 2005

The Albany Movement And The Origin Of Freedom Songs, Nicole Lenart

The Gettysburg Historical Journal

“We became visible.” This is how Bernice Johnson Reagon, a Civil Rights Movement worker, a member of the Freedom Singers, and the founder of Sweet Honey In The Rock explained how songs uplifted and inspired those blacks and whites who worked tirelessly for freedom throughout the 1950’s and 1960’s. Indeed, freedom songs in the movement gave participants the ability to stand up against their fears, express their hopes and desires, and unite the diverse range of people who participated in the movement. Reagon, now a history professor and music legend, grew up right outside of Albany, Georgia, where ...
