Separate is Never Equal. When learning about the history of the U.S. Civil Rights movement, many Latino students across classrooms do not often hear about advances made by Mexican-American’s such as the Mendez family. It is important that stories such as Sylvia’s be told in order for ethnically diverse students to be able to imagine that they can stand up for equity, invoke change, and make positive contributions to society. Review from Vamos a Leer.
