Black Males in Higher Education: Communities of Color
MetadataShow full metadata
This qualitative research study will explore six forms of cultural capital that Students of Color bring with them to the classroom from their homes and communities (Yosso, 2005). Using Critical Race Theory, Yosso introduces an anti-deficit approach, an alternative to the traditional Bourdieuean cultural capital theory, to bring attention to an array of cultural knowledge, skills, experiences, abilities and social networks that people of color and marginalized groups utilize to aid in their success in higher education. These cultural wealth capitals are often unrecognized or acknowledged.
