Hostos Community College, CUNY
April 24, 2009
Why did we come here? And why are we so poor? Historian Carlos Sanabria discusses migration and the situation of the U.S. Hispanic population in the post-World War Two period. He outlines areas of study such as the demographic revolutions which led to the growth, dispersal, and diversity of the Hispanic population in the U.S.; migration stories from locations such as Cuba, Dominican Republic, Mexico, and Puerto Rico; and the causes, successes, and shortcomings of Hispanic migration among the different groups. Dr. Sanabria is coordinator of Latin American and Caribbean Studies at Hostos Community College, City University of New York.
