The Lebanese Immigration Experience in the Delta
This chapter examines the story of the Lebanese in Mississippi. This group came to the state fleeing hardship and oppression, and settled primarily in the caste-based, Jim Crow Delta, a place where they were considered neither black nor white. Their story involves looking at how they negotiated the complex color line by working between the two predominant races and how they ultimately used economic power to assimilate into white society while maintaining their Lebanese cultural identity.
