Land of the Cosmic Race: Race Mixture, Racism, and Blackness in Mexico

Christina A. Sue


Land of the Cosmic Race is a richly-detailed ethnographic account of the role that race and color play in organizing the lives and thoughts of mixed-race Mexicans. It presents a previously untold story of how individuals in contemporary urban Mexico construct their identities, attitudes, and practices in the context of a dominant national belief system.

Keywords: Race, Color, Mexico, Racial ideology, Latin America, Race mixture
