Our friends at the Latino Media Collective from D.C. guest host this latest episode of Latino Rebels Radio. Following one of the largest immigration ICE raids in years, the LMC speaks with Angela Stuesse about the recent history of Mississippi’s Latino community and how labor exploitation by the state’s food-processing industry brought them there. Stuesse is an anthropologist at the University of North Carolina and the author of Scratching Out a Living: Latinos, Race, and Work in the Deep South.
