       Scratching Out a Living takes readers deep into 
       Mississippi's chicken processing communities and 
       workplaces, where large numbers of Latin American migrants
       began arriving in the mid-1990s to labor alongside an 
       established African American workforce in some of the most
       dangerous and lowest paid jobs in the country. Based on 
       six years of collaboration with a local workers' center, 
       activist anthropologist Angela Stuesse explores how Black,
       white, and new Latino residents have experienced and 
       understood these transformations. Illuminating connections
       between the area's long history of racial inequality, the 
       poultry industry's growth, immigrants' contested place in 
       contemporary social relations, and workers' prospects for 
       political mobilization, Scratching Out a Living calls for 
       organizing strategies that bring diverse working 
       communities together in mutual construction of a more just
       future"--Provided by publisher.
