Episode 141: Browning of the New South

Continuing last week’s discussion on race and immigration in the United States, today’s episode features Dr. Jennifer Jones, Assistant Professor of Sociology and Latin American and Latino Studies at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Dr. Jones is also the author of The Browning of the New South, which explores shifting race relations in the South and the experiences of Mexican immigrants who have settled in the Winston-Salem area of North Carolina. During the interview, they have a conversation about her motivation for writing the book (40:30), misconceptions about immigrant incorporation (45:40), and the South as a new immigrant destination (48:45). They also discuss Dr. Jones’ concept of reverse incorporation (54:40), the racialization of Latinos (59:45), the growing sense of minority linked fate between Latinos and African Americans (1:03:10), and the potential for coalition building between the two communities (1:08:21).
