Latino City explores the transformation of Lawrence, Massachusetts into New England’s first Latinx-majority city. Pushed to migrate by U.S. imperialism in Latin America, poor and working-class Latinxs then had to reckon with the segregation, joblessness, disinvestment, and profound stigma that plagued U.S. cities during the crisis era. For many Puerto Ricans and Dominicans, there was no “American Dream” awaiting them in Lawrence; instead, Latinxs fought for their rights in the ruins of industrial America.
