Stolen Education Film & Lecture

When: Tue., Jan. 21, 6:30-7:45 p.m. 2020

To celebrate DreamWeek 2020, the Las Palmas Branch Library and YWCA Olga Madrid Center are hosting UTSA professor Dr. Enrique Alemán, Jr. for a screening and discussion of the documentary Stolen Education, which he produced and wrote. The film exposes how Mexican-American farm worker schoolchildren were discriminated against in Texas schools in the 1950s. The film echoes themes of Brown v. Board of Education (1954) with politics, racism, oppression and the denial of an equitable education.
