dimension in the study of racial-ethnic communities, as with all others, and that oral historians working in these communities must exorcise the bogeyman of not only homogeneous racial-ethnic communities but that of unchanging ones as well.16

Recently, a U.C. Berkeley professor celebrated for his innovative approach to African-American cultural history capsulized the larger point of this chapter:

Contemporary scholars have demonstrated again and again that, in penetrating the culture of a neglected group, historians often find more than they bargained for. What looked like a group becomes an amalgam of groups; what looked like a culture becomes a series of cultures. Americans on the eve of World War II might have seen only a monolith when they looked at Japanese Americans, but historians must see something vastly more complicated: The Issei born in Japan and legally barred from becoming U. S. citizens, the Nisei, born and raised here and thus citizens by birth, the Kibei, born here but raised in Japan and thus legally Americans and culturally Japanese, as well as those who lived in cities and those who lived on farms, those who struggled to maintain the old ways and those who hungered for acculturation. The complexity I speak of is not the complexity of specialized languages or esoteric methodologies but the complexity of people and the cultures they create. ( Levine, 1993, pp. 11-12)
