Our Project MALES faculty affiliate Dr. Claudia García-Louis has recently published the article, Ni Latino, Ni Negro: The (in)visibility of AfroLatino Males in Higher Education Research. This study highlights the lived experiences of six self-identified AfroLatino males in higher education by centering their experiences as racialized men on campus.
Findings from this study illustrate how AfroLatino males are forced to navigate a campus climate that does not acknowledge their physical presence (as AfroLatino males) or their academic needs. Further, they reported being forced to negotiate strict racial and ethnic categories in addition to language in order to gain peer acceptance on campus.
Our Project MALES team would like to congratulate you on the important work you continue to do on behalf of male students of color. You can learn more about Dr. Garcia-Louis’s work through our PM Affiliates website here.
