Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Brown in the Windy Cityand#160;is the first history to examine the migration and settlement of Mexicans and Puerto Ricans in postwar Chicago. Lilia Fernand#225;ndez reveals how the two populations arrived in Chicago in the midst of tremendous social and economic change and, in spite of declining industrial employment and massive urban renewal projects, managed to carve out a geographic and racial place in one of Americaand#8217;s great cities. Through their experiences in the cityand#8217;s central neighborhoods over the course of these three decades, Fernand#225;ndez demonstrates how Mexicans and Puerto Ricans collectively articulated a distinct racial position in Chicago, one that was flexible and fluid, neither black nor white.
