Cape Verdean culture is a critical element of the social identity of a growing number of community members in and around the Boston, Massachusetts area; however, immigration to America and assimilation into a multicultural city, reshapes Cape Verdean identity. Cape Verde is not limited to the borders of the island nation, several thriving diasporic communities exist, fostering multiple sites of home identity. This thesis exposes cultural identity clarity—and explores how different generational cohorts interpret Cape Verdean identity. Through qualitative research, ethnographic interviews and an examination of an afterschool program developed to support knowledge of Cape Verdean culture, and framing the research data through the lens of Dr. W.E.B. Dubois’s double consciousness theory allows for an examination of the Sociology of Boston area Cape Verdean culture.
