Globalization, an increase in international mobility through international migration, is not limited to race, nationality or ethnicity. The world is an increasingly expanding canvas even as it continues to shrink due to people capitalizing on more technology, which brings us closer through the internet. Today, more people have the ability to travel and they are taking the opportunity to explore alternative career opportunities. This book explored the motivating factors for African American female expatriates adjusting to their host countries. The participants evaluated their adaptation, identity, experience, common bonds, and perceptions. Through this exploration, there was an apparent intercultural shift among the participants in terms of value and perception. Based on the research there is a definite need for more research on self-initiated expats who are moving abroad in the field of teaching, especially in ESL, and a need to explore theoretical frameworks around cultural adaptation and the adjustment of African American expatriates.
