The Tejano Diaspora

The Tejano Diaspora, is a book written by historian Marc S. Rodriguez detailing the life and politics of Tejano migrant farmworker activists in Texas and Wisconsin. The Tejano Diaspora sent nearly 250,000 Mexican American farmworkers north to the Great Lakes and west to California, and in the 1960s built a civil rights, labor union, and social rights movement based on the politics of Mexican Americanism.
