About the Author

Melanie R. Covert is assistant professor of psychology at Brenau University.


Melanie Covert's is the first book of its kind illuminating the experiences of Romani Americans. It is full of sharp analysis, rich accounts, and opens the reader's eyes to the complexities of Romani American identity. Covert should be praised for demonstrating a dire need for increased race consciousness for a largely invisible group in the United States. American Roma dispels the myths of easy assimilation for Romani Americans and gives light to cultural mores and struggles with both historical trauma and negative stereotypes. -- Rosalind Chou, Georgia State University
