If you go to @Google ’s site, you’ll find a doodle of Felicitas Mendez. We praise the importance Brown v. Board in igniting school desegregation activism. But before Brown there was Mendez v. Westminster, and it just shows how long & hard we’ve been fighting for equitable schools.

Today’s Google Doodle honors civil rights pioneer Felicitas Mendez. She sued a CA school for refusing her kids enrollment bec of their skin color. In 1946 a fed court ruled schools were violating Mexican American citizen’s rights.

If you’ve used Google today meet Felicitas Mendez— a beautiful Puerto Rican woman & civil rights pioneer.
Her children were refused enrollment to a school in California due to their skin color and ethnicity & she fought back in court—later segregation was ruled unconstitutional.

Google Drive was having an epic meltdown today, so I shifted my lesson plan rt before class, & it worked out for the best!
Played the rock n roll & son jarocho versions of La Bamba, played a Latinx History Kahoot & introduced my kids to the Nearpod Latinx History Rap Contest. Two hearts

We also talked about today’s Felicitas Mendez Google doodle, and Richard Montañez, the inventor of Hot Cheetos!
99% of my students are Latinx, and admitted that they’ve only learned about Cesar Chavez, Dolores Huerta, and Frida Kahlo.

Felicitas Mendez was a business owner, a civil rights pioneer, and a good trouble maker. She is most known for her role in suing the school district in Westminster, California, after her children were refused enrollment at a local public school because of their skin color.

Did you know that Mendez vs. Westminster set a precedent for the desegregation of schools & that Thurgood Marshall later used some of the arguments from that case in Brown? Me neither. But the story is fascinating. Today’s Google Doodle honors Felicitas Mendez.
