    Name: A Class Action: Traveling Exhibition
    Date: June 29, 2018 - July 31, 2018
    Event Description:
    A Class Action tells the story of Mendez et al. v. Westminster School District et al, the landmark lawsuit that brought an end to the segregation in California schools. In 1945, seven years before Brown v. Board of Education, five fathers in Orange County brought forth a class-action lawsuit on behalf of 5,000 children, including their own, where they were being forced to attend segregated “Mexican-schools.” Through a mixture of pictures and first-hand accounts this exhibit tells the story of community and grass roots activism bringing about effective change.
