Scratching out a Living: Latinos,Race, and Work in the Deep South

Dr. Angela Stuesse, University of North Carolina

How has Latino immigration transformed the South? Dr. Stuesse will talk on her recent book "Scratching Out a Living: Latinos, Race, and Work in the Deep South” which explores the state of Mississippi's long history of racial inequality at the empirical site of the state's poultry industry and workers' efforts to mobilize. Based on six years of collaboration with a local workers' center, this lecture will explore how Black, white, and new Latino Mississippian men and women have lived and understood these transformations.
