This chapter examines two immigrant collaboration projects in New York City where Dominican-Americans are involved. It suggests that the Dominican-Americans' involvement in these interracial/interethnic collaborations provides insights into the ways in which Dominicanness, local Dominican politics, coalitions, and diaspora come together as Dominican-Americans contend with conceptualizations of race, nation, and power in the U.S. The chapter also discusses the meaningful coexistence of various communities of color which may led to a new territory of panethnic/pan-racial theorizing.

Keywords: Dominican-Americans; New York City; immigrant collaboration; interracial/interethnic relations; diaspora
