“Beyond Survival: A Portrait of Latin@ Identity in North Carolina” reveals the complex identities developed by Latin@s living in the US state of North Carolina since the start of the 21st century. The chapter reviews qualitative research conducted on Latin@ communities in the state using meta-ethnographic synthesis. It also takes into account the personal experiences of two Latin@ doctoral students who moved to the state to engage in research. The resulting synthesis illustrates how Latin@ communities are developing new discourses and forging spaces through education, identity, and fuerzas (strength) in the face of systematic barriers. The emergence of supervivencia (beyond mere survival) also resists deficit perspectives on Latin@s in the state.

Keywords:   qualitative research, meta-ethnography, Latin@, North Carolina, education, identity, fuerzas, supervivencia
