Displaced in the New South
In 1980, there were a few thousand Asian and Latino immigrants in Georgia. By 1994, there were more than 300,000. This remarkable documentary explores the cultural collision between Asian and Hispanic immigrants and the suburban communities near Atlanta, Georgia, in which they have settled.
The film provides an informative, sensitive, and insightful case study of a widespread trend that is bringing explosive political upheaval all across America: waves of people, mostly from Asia and Latin America, coming to cities, small towns, and suburban communities that have never before experienced immigration on such a scale.
“Displaced in the New South” is an exemplary case study and essential viewing for anyone interested in the New South and for any course dealing with contemporary American history and culture, social issues and problems, culture change and identity, or immigration and multiculturalism. It was produced by David Zeiger and Eric Mofford.
