Enrique Alemán, Jr., a professor in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies at the University of Texas at San Antonio, will screen and discuss “Stolen Education,” the film he produced and wrote that tells the story of Mexican-American school children who challenged discrimination in Texas schools in the 1950s and changed the face of education in the Southwest. The 1956 federal court case was one of the first post-Brown desegregation court cases to be litigated. “Stolen Education” presents the full story, featuring the personal accounts of most of those who were at the center of the court case.

Location: George I. Sanchez Building (SZB) 324, University of Texas campus
