'Un-American' Americans: Latina Working-Class Activism in Ybor City, Florida
USF Libraries Florida Studies Center
University of South Florida Libraries
In the summer of 1937, six years of labor unrest ended as Latina women enlivened a movement of mass protest to demand recognition of Latinos as legitimate citizens of Ybor City, Tampa, and the broader United States. By uniting the ideals of anti-fascism, labor rights, and civil rights, local Latinas fought for equality despite the belief in their "Un-American" activities. 2012 Riordan fellow Sarah McNamara discusses her research on the protest movement for equality.
