Renewing Political Cartographies
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.
