Shifting Identities

Abstract

W.E.B. DuBois in his classic, The Souls of Black Folks (1903) raised the seminal metaphysical question regarding identity formation in the United States. Countless other scholars, scholar activists, and just plain citizens since, have and are raising this historical interrogative. "Who Am I?" "Who are we?" "Am I not a woman?" These questions are formed in the crucible of racism's white hot heat. And in an important sense, raising these questions is an essential first step towards mounting opposition to those hegemonic forces which work to ascribe social identity The articles comprising this issue of the Ethnic Studies Review again draw our attention to the recurring questions regarding the implications of identity formation
