Sylvia Mendez on Wednesday

Sylvia Mendez will speak on October 8th in the evening at 6:30 in the Student Center Ballroom about Westminster School District v. Mendez, 161 F.2d 774 (9th Cir. 1947). The case, which preceded Brown v. Board of Education, held that a school district’s segregation of taxpayers of Mexican descent violated their Constitutional rights.
