Summary
"Choosing Their Own Style examines identity issues among Haitian youth in Quebec. Since Quebec is a Francophone society in Anglophone North America, linguistic and cultural confusion often causes immigrants to assume multiple identities in order to fit in. Examining how young Haitians - an integral part of the provincial mosaic - are influenced by this complicated social and cultural paradigm, this book illustrates how Haitian youth are currently identifying and expressing themselves in Quebec, and demonstrates how they resist categorization into a fixed ethnocultural group, creating a distinct, still-emerging societal and cultural classification of their own."--Jacket
