How has Latino immigration transformed the rural South? In what ways has the presence of these newcomers complicated efforts to organize for workplace justice? Based on six years of engagement with a poultry workers’ center in Mississippi, Dr. Angela Stuesse – Assistant Professor of Anthropology – discusses thestory of how Black, white, and new Latino southerners have lived and understood these transformations in the chicken plants and surrounding communities, and calls for organizing strategies that bring diverse working communities together.
