How Did You Get to Be Mexican
Kevin R Johnson (Author)
DescriptionThis compelling account of racial identity takes a close look at the question Who is a Latino? and determines where persons of mixed Latino-Anglo heritage fit into the racial dynamics of the United States. The son of a Mexican American mother and an Anglo father, Kevin Johnson has spent his life in the borderlands between racial identities. In this insightful book, he uses his experiences as a mixed Latino-Anglo to examine issues of diversity, assimilation, race relations, and affirmative action in contemporary America.
