Segregation is associated with the South, but it also happened in California—the first state to desegregate schools eight years before Brown v. Board of Education! In this Institute, to be held at Chapman University, participants will be immersed in the "integrated" Méndez et al v. Westminster et al experience. Spend an unforgettable morning understanding the history of Latino education in the U.S. using a critical lens. Hop on the special CABE Méndez v Westminster bus during this 70th anniversary of this landmark lawsuit that helped desegregate the southwest and contributed to a national movement. The tour will include the last Orange County Mexican School along with segregated public venues and archival material. The program ends with a meet and greet with case family members in the Centro Comunitario de Educación in Santa Ana. Bring your cell phone or tablet to capture the engulfing sights and the presenters will assist with editing processes.
Pre-Registration is Required.
