This provocative look at the connections―and conflicts―between Latinos and African Americans in the United States assesses the challenges facing both groups as they strive to achieve the American dream.

Latino and African American communities in the United States share neighborhoods, similar family values, and many of the same challenges faced by minorities, yet are often at odds about their distinctive cultures and position in society. This book looks at the social and political history of both groups, pointing out their differences and similarities, and exploring their perceived role in America's social strata.

Author Karen Juanita Carrillo delves into the often-controversial issues that have undermined Afro-Latino race relations in this country, including how the war on poverty led to competition and animosity, how the legacy of slavery bears on their relationship, and how prejudices among new immigrants inflame existing tensions. The book features a multitude of views and perspectives on what it means to be American for Latino and African American populations. Its extensive discussion of immigrant groups includes those arriving from Mexico, Puerto Rico, Cuba, El Salvador, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Colombia, Honduras, Ecuador and Peru.
