by Josue Mendoza This shadow box represents the dominant narrative and the counter narrative of being male and Mexican. So on the inside it is showing The counter narratives. But the outside is showing the dominant narrative. Many people may believe that I am an immigrant or a male that can be unemotional. But what I really am is a Latino that is legal and emotional And someone that can show off and be proud of who they are. A counter narrative that I see myself is that I am ready to face the world I’m ready to go against all the oppression that the world hits me with.
