Drawing Sustenance at the Source: African American Students’ Participation in the Black Community as an Act of Resistance

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The black campus community, often viewed as a marginal location on the college campus, is by no means marginal to the college experiences of African American students at predominantly white colleges. The findings of this ethnographic study show that African American students’ participation in the black campus community enables them to persist in college. Participation in black community facilitates African American students’ execution of resistance practices – oppositional behaviors and critical resistant navigational skills. The resistance practices of African American students at this college perform two functions: 1) a conservative function, in terms of preserving their cultural integrity and extending the black campus community’s legacy of struggle; as well as 2) a transformative function, in terms of challenging and altering the space of the predominantly white campus.
