This text investigates the literate identities and practices of urban youth in rapidly gentrifying neighborhoods, with a focus on New York Citys Harlem neighborhood. The author takes a participatory action approach to define and engage with new directions in youth literacies in socially constructed spaces (i.e., classrooms, gentrifying communities). The author examines connections between race and place by discussing how Harlem youth, teachers, longtime black residents, and new white residents to the area view their role within the gentrification process, with quotes from community members and stakeholders. The active response of youth, via critical literacy/storytelling, in both traditional (print) and multimodal (digital video, etc) forms is investigated, honored, and thoughtfully considered for powerful implications for in-service teaching practice, educational policy, and teacher education. Vignettes, photos, and quotes from students and community members are included throughout.
Stephanie Jones is an associate professor of education at the University of Georgia. Lane W. Clarke is an assistant professor in literacy at Northern Kentucky University. Grace Enriquez is an assistant professor in language and literacy at Lesley University.
