Description
Summary:'Latino and Muslim in America' examines how so called 'minority groups' are made, fragmented, and struggle for recognition in the US. Harold Morales follows the lives of several Latino Muslim leaders from the 1970's to the present, and their efforts to organize and unify nationally in order to solidify the new identity group's place within the public sphere.
