We decided to study how 1.5 & 2nd generation Black Columbus immigrants identities are impacted by their literacy. For the use of this study we define generations 1.5 & 2.0 as black immigrants who were either born in America or moved here when they were fairly young. People are much more malleable when they are young, so we hypothesized that this would be the easiest demographic to study the impact of literacy and how it molds the person that they are.
