Jaime Crow in New Mexico: Mexicans and Whites in Grant County since 1870, with Dr. Stephen Fox

Saturday, August 29, 2020

Historian Stephen Fox will explore the regime of Anglo-Hispanic segregation in Southwest New Mexico, known as “Jaime Crow” and based on systems of white supremacy imported from the Jim Crow South. In Silver City, the relative equality and fairness of its pioneer days yielded after 1900 to novel separations and mistreatments. Complete Jaime Crow conditions came to Grant County from the outsiders who ran the mining towns of Santa Rita and Hurley, notably one who had spent a decade in the South and installed many of its segregationist practices. Stephen Fox was born in Boston and attended college in western Massachusetts, and grad school in Rhode Island. He graduated from Williams College in 1966 and earned his PhD in US history at Brown University in 1971. He published seven books between 1970 and 2007. Steve and his wife moved to Silver City in 2008. His article on that he history of discrimination against Hispanics in Grant County was the New Mexico Historical Review.
