Description-

  • Almost 10 years before Brown vs. Board of Education, Sylvia Mendez and her parents helped end school segregation in California. An American citizen of Mexican and Puerto Rican heritage who spoke and wrote perfect English, Mendez was denied enrollment to a "Whites only" school. Her parents took action by organizing the Hispanic community and filing a lawsuit in federal district court. Their success eventually brought an end to the era of segregated education in California.

Reviews-

  • DOGO Books super10 - I think this book is a great push for anti- racism. In this book the Méndez family fight for segregation. They tried to enroll 5 kids in a school. 2 white kids got in, but 3 Mexican kids didn't. The Méndez family constantly asked why, but wouldn't get a answer. But after a year of fighting, they got justice. I liked this book because it showed me that segregation is cruel, mean, and unfair. I really liked the style that the author used to draw pictures with in the book.
