Abstract

Believing that Latinismo supplemented, but did not replace, their own identity, Mexican American leaders have supported the movement since the late nineteenth century. Chicano nationalists, however, rejected Latinismo, holding that it transformed victims of Spanish American conquests (the Mexican people) into victimizers. This paper discusses Mexican Americans' and Anglo city-builders' support of a pan-Latino identity, with a close look at the fight over Latinismo in San Jose, 1969.
