MCADV is a statewide resource on domestic violence issues.We provide support for member shelter programs though training, technical assistance and capacity building; advocate for public policy that supports victims; and seek to change societal attitudes and beliefs through awareness and prevention activities in communities throughout Mississippi.We also show how, at least in central Mississippi, the industry's earliest experiments with hiring transnational workers were linked to African American workers' organized struggles for economic opportunity.Our research thus treats immigration as neither entirely new, nor peripheral, to experiences of race and labor in the Deep South.The collection is edited by Jana Lipman and Steve Striffler. Local high school football teams compete for the "Golden Chicken" trophy.4 Typical for poultry-producing areas, many of Scott County's residents struggle to make ends meet, and nearly half of Forest's households earn less than ,000 per year.It's dusk, and the putrid odor of chickens heading to and from slaughter floats through the warm evening air, just as it has all summer. Just under 50 percent of Forest's population is African American, approximately 30 percent is white, and almost 25 percent self-identifies as "Hispanic."5 Scott County, then, differs from some areas of the US South that have attracted large numbers of Latin American immigrants in the past twenty years.

Centered upon Scott County, home of Mississippi's poultry industry (where the "Hispanic" population increased by over 1,000 percent from 1990 to 2000), this essay situates the present moment within histories of industrial restructuring, political economies of race, and local labor movements. In Mississippi, the "Hispanic" population in poultry industry locales grew by over 1000 percent in the 1990s.2 Driven by the industry's recruitment of foreign-born labor, by the early 2000s immigration had made Scott County, at the center of this state, home to Cubans, Dominicans, Hondurans, Guatemalans, Mexicans, Peruvians, Argentines, and other Latin Americans.
series Spaces of Southern Labor, a collection of innovative, interdisciplinary publications drawn from the Southern Labor Studies Association meetings about working class history, politics, and life. These newcomers joined a society structured by deeply entrenched racial hierarchies and an industry known for some of the lowest paid and most dangerous jobs in the country.3 In Scott County's seat of Forest, population six thousand, there are five large-scale poultry processing plants dominating local industry.
Since the early 2000s, scholars have increasingly turned their attention to Latino migration to the US South.6 Emphasizing the novelty of the new immigrant stream where a black-white binary had long dominated local understandings of race, some scholars dubbed the phenomenon the "New South."7 Early descriptive work, by recognizing the significance of ongoing demographic shifts and documenting the challenges faced by new immigrants, laid the foundation for what has become a robust interdisciplinary field of study.8 More recent work has moved away from an emphasis on novelty by demonstrating a longer history of Latinos in the Deep South9 and by situating long-term residents' reception of recent immigrants within their memories and understanding of local histories, particularly of recent racial struggles like school busing.10 Our work corroborates this more sustained critical engagement with history in order to comprehend the complexities of the transnational present.
