In light of the 2000 Census, where 85.5% of the population in Puerto Rico identified itself as white, this collection of essays contributes to the race debate by defining racism, its multiple ways of manifestation, its functionality and consequences.These articles pay special attention to the role of the Afro-Puerto Rican woman in the formation of national and international civil society, intersecting race and gender. Some of the topics covered include: history of black women in early 20th century education, racial ideology, Dominican migrant women, the racialization of women’s work and national identity
