Summary
"Dr. Yvonne Bobb-Smith explores the knowledge and history of resistance of Caribbean women in Canada, using her own journey as a personal place from which to navigate the generalized experience of settlement and adjustment in the Diaspora. I Know Who I Am investigates the stories of forty-five Caribbean women of different backgrounds and heritages. Bobb-Smith presents their conceptualization of the experiences of racism and sexism in their everyday lives and their strategizing resistance. This book is about empowerment in the lives of Caribbean women. This empowerment is seen as an enabling mechanism to resist an "immigrant woman" identity, imposed through racism and sexism in the period of adjustment in Canada."--Jacket
