Join us for this lunchtime event, co-sponsored by the Latino Law Students Association, the Multi-Cultural Law Students Association, the Asian Pacific Law Students Association, the Black Law Students Association and the Association for Public Interest Law, which will feature a screening of the film “A Class Apart.” Lunch will be provided and a discussion, facilitated by LLSA Chair, Jenny Santana and BLSA Chair, Darnae Wells, will follow the movie.

This film brings to life the heroic post-World War II struggles of Mexican Americans against the Jim Crow-style discrimination targeted against them. It highlights the landmark 1954 civil rights case Hernandez v. Texas in which a group of Latino lawyers sought to ensure that Mexican Americans were recognized by the 14th Amendment by bringing their case to the United States Supreme Court – and winning.

This event is Open only to RWU and RWU Law students, faculty and staff.
