For my shadow box, I put a U.S. flag and a Salvadorian flag. The U.S flag represents my nationality because it was the country that I was born in. The Salvadorian flag also represents my race and ethnicity because I was born in the U.S but my family came from El Salvador. Also African-American is half of my race and ethnicity. The black paper in the background represents my Black background in terms of my ethnicity. Also I put money on the background. I put money to show my counter narrative. This shows my counter narrative because it shows that Black people do have money and proves the stereotypes wrong. For the dominant narrative I put a KFC bucket because people think that Black people like KFC. Also the person with the question mark resents the dominant narrative for Black people because people think that sense I am black my dad left me, but it is true. But a counter narrative is my baby pic. It is a counter narrative because it shows that colored people have a good home. Also the sign that says no gang also represents the counter narrative because people also think that Black people are in a gang but I am not in a gang. I have also chosen a quote which is “never give up.” I have chosen this quote because this quote keeps me going.
