Ybor City: Crucible of the Latina South
UNC Press

Sarah McNamara’s book traces the politics of Cuban immigrants and their descendants, the central role of women, and histories of labor organizing in Tampa’s cigar-making community.

“Ybor City: Crucible of the Latina South is the best that Latinx history has to offer—deeply researched and rigorous but with respect toward diasporic peoples and the rich communities they build and evolve within.” – Perla Guerrero in NACLA


AARP Florida, WUSF Public Media, and USF Libraries provide support for Florida Conversions.
