Abstract/Artist's Statement

Using previous literary and empirical research conjoined with two additional in-depth interviews, this thesis serves to provide a better understanding of the experiences of Black and Latinx high school students who attended a predominantly white public high school in the United States. This study focuses on how these students’ experiences may have been influenced by their race. The project utilizes Symbolic Interactionism to interpret and understand such experiences, with a focus on race-based educational patterns. In short, this paper argues that in attending a predominantly white public high school, the experiences of Black and Latinx students are affected by their race.
