dc.description.abstractThis research inquiry used critical race methodology to unearth the counter-stories of young people from Liberty Village, a public housing community based in the Niagara region. The community is highly racialized, low income and possesses a lingering, though unwarranted, reputation for crime and violence. The majoritarian or traditional story of the community and its residents perpetuates a negative image, one that often goes unchallenged. The counter-stories produced by the young people of the Liberty Village community actively challenge the status quo and highlight participant experiences with racism, and its intersections with oppression and marginality. These counter-stories highlight the importance of sport and, in particular, the community basketball/sport court, as a significant place in the lives of young people in Liberty Village. Their accounts also highlight the day-to-day racism that exists and the micro-aggressions subtly produced by the racial majority. These stories produce significant knowledge to help better understand marginalized youth experiences, sport for development programs, and the impact of racialized micro-aggressions.en_US
