Elson Lecture: Gary M. Segura, Latino America: How America’s Most Dynamic Population is Poised to Transform the Politics of the Nation
Atlanta History Center Lecture
Dec 2 2014 – 8:00pm
Sometime in April 2014, somewhere in a hospital in California, a Latino child tipped the demographic scales as Latinos displaced non-Hispanic whites as the largest racial/ethnic group in the state. So, one-hundred-sixty-six years after the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo brought the Mexican province of Alta California into the United States, Latinos once again became the largest population in the state. Surprised? Texas will make the same transition sometime before 2020.
