I have exciting news…………

I am pleased to announce the release of my new book, Language, Identity and Choice: Raising Bilingual Children in a Global Society with Lexington Books. It is available from all major online bookstores and from https://rowman.com/ISBN/9780739193624/Language-Identity-and-Choice-Raising-Bilingual-Children-in-a-Global-Society

From the Back Cover

Language, Identity and Choice: Raising Bilingual Children in a Global Society offers, through vibrant personal reflections and scholarly research, a valuable treatise on the promotion of second language and trans-cultural studies among African Americans. Those wishing to engender in their children and in their communities the positive benefits of bilingualism and intercultural literacy will find this text informative and entertaining.”

— James J. Davis, Howard University

Language, Identity and Choice: Raising Bilingual Children in a Global Society provides scholarly insight into how foreign language acquisition influences an individual’s understanding of identity within the African American family. Rooted in sociolinguistic, communication, and bilingual theoretical perspectives, Kami J. Anderson describes how foreign language acquisition, development, and use shape how African Americans describe and proscribe their identity and, in turn, the identity of the family. Language, Identity and Choice looks specifically at how family language choices, in particular choosing to be bilingual, affect family communication and perception of identity from people outside of the family. Anderson combines both extensive research and her personal experience of being bilingual to challenge the existing notions of what it means to be Black when personal experiences with race and ethnicity extend beyond boundaries of the native country or culture. 

I encourage all of my readers to get your copy TODAY (if possible, please:-))
