The Latino Student organization is hosting a program featuring a presentation by Philippa Strum, author of the book, "Mendez v. Westminster: School Desegregation and Mexican American Rights."

Mendez, et al v. Westminster School District, was a 1946 federal court case that challenged racial segregation in Orange County, California schools. In its ruling, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, in an en banc decision, held that the segregation of Mexican and Mexican American students into separate "Mexican schools" was unconstitutional.

Lunch will be served. Sponsored by the Latino Law Student Association & Student Bar Association.
