Panethnic Identity and the Spanish-Speaking Church

(p.51) Chapter Two El Esplendor, Brillantez e Influencia de Nuestra Raza
Latinos at the Golden Gate

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter examines the rise of a panethnic identity among Latin Americans in San Francisco from the late nineteenth to the early twentieth century. Detailing some of the more pressing qualities of daily life for this population, it explores the ways Latin Americans adapted to their transnational condition and confronted the challenges of racially restrictive norms. These forces fueled the creation of the Spanish-language “national parish” of Our Lady of Guadalupe as a defense and an affirmative expression of a panethnic vision of community. The city's heterogeneous Latin American-descent population found in Guadalupe Church a space to forge a situational form of latinidad, a shared Latino identity.

Keywords:   Latin American migrants, San Francisco, panethnic identity, Latino identity, latinidad, Our Lady of Guadalupe
