As Indian and Pakistani students graduated from Houston’s universities, found employment, and reconstructed ethnic identity, they joined other South Asian residents in settling throughout the city in the late 1960s and 1970s. The local metropolitan context was that of an internationalizing, rapidly developing urban area. As the formal architecture of Jim Crow was dismantled in these very decades, South Asian immigrants’ engagement with the city illuminates the social and economic hierarchies that continued to shape the city.
