Hoops and “Education”: Latino Males, Fugitivity, and Basketball in the City

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Latinxs have a long history of participation in basketball, yet links to education scholarship are for the most part non-existent. In a context of ongoing subtractive policies around curriculum, teaching, toxic immigration policies and other sociopolitical realities, Latinxs have long used “hoops” as a space for identity formation, “education,” and refuge. Working through the aforementioned gap in education scholarship, I make connections to Latino males research, work on fugitivity, and draw implications for decolonizing forms of education/schooling.
