Summary/Abstract: The stories of ethnic-American women add a unique layer to the collective history of American immigration. This essay examines the processes of adaptation and integration of two contemporary ethnic-American women (Ghanaian American and Haitian American), and the ways in which issues of gender, race, and class have impacted the ethnic and American physical, social, and cultural spaces they have navigated in search of their hyphenated identities.
