LLSA Presents: Hernandez v. Texas

Hernandez v. Texas is a little-known case decided by the Supreme Court two weeks before Brown v. Board of Education. Attorneys Gus Garcia and Carlos Cadena led a team of five Mexican American lawyers to challenge Jim Crow-de facto discrimination against Mexicans and other Latinos in the Southwestern U.S. states.

Professor Brittain will be providing a brief synopsis of the case and its historical significance prior to the presentation.

* Chips & Salsa will be served! *
