Abstract

This article explores the importance of teaching ethnic literature at community colleges, and considers the social importance of Ana Castillo's So Far From God (1993) to Southwest learners. In a time when minority education programs are being threatened by budget cuts and are rapidly being displaced/replaced by more fiscally "lucrative" certificates and departments, Castillo's novel demonstrates the contemporary relevance and cultural currency of traditional folklore to small communities.
