Dominican-Americans and the Politics of Empowerment

Ana Aparicio

University Press of Florida

This chapter provides a chronological account of major organizing trends in Washington Heights in New York City, focusing on developments since the 1980s. It challenges the transnational framework used to describe the Dominican immigrant community and analyses the development of community power in conjunction with the collaborations of Dominican-Americans with other people of color. It also describes the factors that allowed Dominicans to imagine a Dominican political space developed in consultation and in solidarity with other organizers of color in New York.

Keywords:   community organization, Washington Heights, New York City, Dominica-Americans, immigrant community
