Black Immigrants, Perceptions of Difference, and the Abiding Sting of Blackness
Milton Vickerman is Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Virginia. He is the author of Crosscurrents: West Indian Immigrants and Race (Oxford University Press, 1999), The Problem of Post-Racialism (Palgrave Macmillan, 2013), and co-editor, with Hephzibah Strmic-Pawl, of “Race and Ethnic Relations: Continuity and Change” (Cognella, forthcoming). He was also co-researcher on a large-scale project that investigated one of the earliest efforts by a local government to pass anti-Latino immigration legislation. This research is summarized in Evaluation Study of Prince William County’s Illegal Immigration Enforcement Policy: Final Report 2010 (Prince William County Police Department and the University of Virginia Center for Survey Research, 2010), which he co-authored with Thomas M. Guterbock, Christopher S. Koper, Bruce Taylor, Karen E. Walker, and Timothy Carter. In other ongoing research on Latinos, Vickerman is investigating employer-Latino relations in new gateways.
