    Event Description:
    How California Led The Way For National School Desegregation

    Experience the exhibition based on the ground-breaking civil rights case, Mendez et al. v. Westminster School District and learn about the progress made in Orange County in 1947 when five families challenged the existence of Mexican schools, ultimately setting a precedent for the desegregation of schools across the country.  

    The interactive exhibition provides a physical space where visitors can explore the case, its origins, and how its legacy inspired others to go on to make a difference. Exhibition features include photographs and items from all plaintiff families, interactive elements and oral histories, docent-led tours, and a space for community dialogue and civic engagement.
