Inventing Latinos by Laura E. Gómez highlights the complex issue of identity among Hispanics and Latinos in America.
Inventing Latinos is recommended for adult readers interested in the historical, political, and social contributions of Hispanic and Latino populations.
Learn how Latinos have been at the forefront of important social and political changes from labor movements to civil rights activism. Inventing Latinos empowers readers with a deeper understanding of Hispanic and Latino history and culture.
Incisive and timely, this bottom-up history, told from the interconnected vantage points of Latinx and African Americans, reveals the radically different ways that people of the diaspora have addressed issues still plaguing the United States today, and it offers a way forward in the continued struggle for universal civil rights.
