Laura Gomez Discusses Her Book “Manifest Destinies” on Texas Public Radio

Professor Laura Gomez joined Texas Public Radio, talking about her book “Manifest Destinies: The Making of the Mexican-American Race,” which explores how America’s newest citizens fit into the existing racial class.
Professor Gomez also sat for a video interview with New Mexico’s NPR station KRWG.  “Mexican Americans have experienced intense racism in this country and therefore thinking about them as a racial group in comparison to African Americans helps us understand a lot of American History.”
