From Durango to the Dairy State: A History of Latinos in Wisconsin

In 1884, classically trained violinist Raphael Baez became one of the first Mexican immigrants to settle in Wisconsin. Today, more than a third of a million Latinos from a variety of national and cultural backgrounds call the state home. This class explores the many motivations that have guided Latino immigrants' decisions to settle in the upper Midwest, as well as their varied settlement experiences throughout the state.
