From Minority to Majority

The Latinization of Miami’s Workforce, 1940–1980

(p.13) 1 From Minority to Majority
Migration and the Transformation of the Southern Workplace since 1945

This chapter demonstrates that the urban metropolis of Miami is really the “gateway” city for Southern Latinization. What is important about Miami and Latinization is that it gives an urban view of Latin American migration to the South, whereas previous scholars have focused almost exclusively on migration from Mexico and to some extent Central America into rural communities. It suggests that while Cuban migrants make up a majority of the Spanish-speaking population of Miami, they are joined by migrants from Central and South America as well as other parts of the Spanish-speaking Caribbean.
