  1. Márquez, C, Juan Crow and the erasure of blackness in the latina/o south, Labor Studies in Working Class History of the Americas, vol. 16 no. 3 (January, 2019), pp. 79-85, Duke University Press [doi]

    This essay examines the use of the term Juan Crow in protests against anti-immigrant legislation in the South. Using the passage of Alabama’s 2011 HB 56 law and the subsequent resistance to the legislation, this essay considers the limits of Juan Crow as a framework for immigrant justice. More specifically, it argues that the term erases the historical and contemporary presence of Afro-Latinos/ as in the South and that those deploying Juan Crow often inadvertently stage Jim Crow as a historical relic and Juan Crow as a present concern, thereby erasing contemporary black oppression in the region.
