Renewing Political Cartographies

(p.161) Conclusion
Dominican-Americans and the Politics of Empowerment

Ana Aparicio

University Press of Florida

This concluding chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the political activities and organization of Dominican-Americans in Washington Heights in New York City. The results indicate that the current organizational activities of Dominican-American leaders in Washington Heights prioritize New York-based concerns over home country issues and that the second-generation Dominican-Americans play a significant role in shaping contemporary racial discourse and politics. The findings also suggest the limitations of the segmented assimilation theory and the nuanced understanding of identity politics.

Keywords:   Dominican-Americans, Washington Heights, New York City, organizational activities, second-generation immigrants, racial discourse, segmented assimilation, identity politics
