Transformation and Resistance in the Nueva New South

(p.183) 7 Transformation and Resistance in the Nueva New South
Looking South

Mary E. Frederickson

University Press of Florida

This chapter analyzes the demographic shift that has brought the Latino population of the region to over 11 million, with 10 million Latinos living in Texas and Florida and 1.6 million relatively new immigrants settling in Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Louisiana. This in-migration changed the biracial workforce of the South for the first time since Reconstruction. Traditional southern culture, black and white, is changing as well. Spanish is heard on streets from suburban Atlanta to Siler City, North Carolina. The religious life of the South has become more diverse as Catholic congregations have expanded and evangelical churches have welcomed new members. A transnational South holds possibility and promise even as it challenges the region's ability to extend democracy to new groups of southerners.

Keywords:   demographic shift, Latino population, biracial workforce, Reconstruction, Catholic congregations
