Revista Genealóigica en Línea: Somos Primos "We are cousins" August 2017 ​

Dear familia, primos y amigos. . . . .

Please cut and paste:

2017 is the 70-year anniversary of the Orange County, California Mendez v. Westminster school desegregation landmark case.  This WWII case involved five Latino families fighting against 4 school districts on behalf of 5,000 children who were being denied access to equal education and opportunity by being segregated to inferior schools and demeaned social status.  Mendez helped pave the way to the Supreme Court case Brown v. Board of Education seven years later but most American, even among Mexican Americans and other Latinos have no idea that segregation took place all across America, targeting Latinos, Asian Americans, Native Americans, as well as African-Americans.

This year in recognition of the 70-year anniversary of the Mendez case, some of the many individuals who for years have been involved in promoting this case history have come together in two major Orange County, California projects, organized independently under the leadership of Westminster City Councilman and Sandra Robbie, author/documentarian, both with the goal of building awareness and pride in our shared history and contributions to American Civil rights.

As editor of Somos Primos, in its 18 years of online publication, I have published many articles pertaining to the Mendez case. I am serving on both Mendez committees and enthusiastically invite your involvement and support.
