Abstract

A long-time researcher of “education in the New Latino Diaspora” considers how ephemeral the demographic and sociopolitical contexts were for the endeavors captured in “Building the Dream” but concurs with the aptness of considering the five focal students’ participation in a local Spanish radio program as acts of transformational resistance (Solorzano & Delgado Bernal, 2001) with particular consequences for their sense of coming-of- age into a welcoming intergenerational Latino community.
