Abstract:

Mexicans as Europeans: Mexican nationalism and assimilation in New Orleans, 1910-1939 -- Different from that which is intended for the colored race: Mexicans and Mexico in Jim Crow Mississippi, 1918-1939 -- Citizens of somewhere: braceros, Tejanos, Dixiecrats, and Mexican bureaucrats in the Arkansas delta, 1939-1964 -- Mexicano stories and rural white narratives: creating pro-immigrant conservatism in rural Georgia, 1965-2004 -- Skyscrapers and chicken plants: Mexicans, Latinos, and exurban immigration politics in greater Charlotte, 1990-2012 -- Conclusion

"When Latino migration to the U.S. South became increasingly visible in the 1990s, observers and advocates grasped for ways to analyze "new" racial dramas in the absence of historical reference points. However, as this book is the first to comprehensively document, Mexicans and Mexican Americans have a long history of migration to the U.S. South. Corazón de Dixie recounts the untold histories of Mexicanos' migrations to New Orleans, Mississippi, Arkansas, Georgia, and North Carolina as far back as 1910. It follows Mexicanos into the heart of Dixie, where they navigated the Jim Crow system, cultivated community in the cotton fields, purposefully appealed for help to the Mexican government, shaped the southern conservative imagination in the wake of the civil rights movement, and embraced their own version of suburban living at the turn of the twenty-first century"
