tejano diaspora

This important, tightly woven book addresses Tejano (Mexican Americans in Texas) dispersal across the United States and this diaspora’s impact on migrants’ politics as workers, activists, and citizens…..Rodriguez’s book has national implications for U.S. civil rights history. The links between the Midwest and Chicano activism are now clear.
