"Yeah, it connects everybody...": Sports, Transformative Citizenship Education, and Children of Nigerian Immigrants in Ireland

This study explores how participation in sports helps four elementary-grade children of Nigerian immigrants in Ireland access transformative citizenship education. Findings suggest that through sports, the students developed cooperative learning skills, formed cross-racial friendships, and had opportunities to explore their identities as Irish people of color and children of immigrants.
