Hispanic Heritage Month Fact -  Did you know that segregating schools was an issue long before African American Civil rights in the 1950’s?  In the 1930’s, the case of Roberto Alvarez vs the Board of Trustees of the Lemon Grove School District, was the first successful school desegregation court decision in the history of the United States.  It is important in U.S. history, because the Hispanic community took court action and won the case establishing rights of their children to equal education, despite local, regional and national sentiment favoring not only segregation, but actual deportation of the Mexican population. This case is a testimony of the San Diego Mexican community's rights and actions towards equality in education; not only for their own children, but for the Mexican population in California and the United States.
