This chapter describes the setting and details the early stages of community-level change in Winston-Salem. Linking daily interpersonal interactions with large-scale political and economic shifts that shaped community relations through the 1990s, Chapter 2 provides a historical overview of race relations and economic conditions prior to massive demographic change. The chapter then zooms out to macro-level factors that shaped the area over the next two decades, providing a brief overview of the push-pull factors that brought Mexican migrants to North Carolina. Chapter 2 ends by elucidating a period of both heightened economic prosperity and demographic change, a time of growth, mobility, and opportunity for all residents.

Keywords:   Winston-Salem, demographic change, race relations, migration, labor market, Mexico
