Item # 9781477324370
product description The Mexican American Experience in Texas by Martha Menchaca explores inequality and oppression, shedding light on important aspects of history that are often ignored. The book starts by discussing the beginning of Texas, a Spanish settlement. From the start, Mexican Americans struggled to be included in society because of their racial heritage. From there, the author delves into the political fights throughout the nineteenth century to battle segregation, housing covenants and more. Insightful and engaging, it also highlights Mexican Americans' roles in society and the continued work to ensure equality.
