The Lemon Grove Incident

Readers in San Diego, mark your calendars!

In conjunction with the RACE: Are We So Different? exhibit, the San Diego Museum of Man will be hosting a series of special events highlighting the Lemon Grove Incident.

  • Saturday, March 19th:
    Roberto Alvarez, Ph.D., UCSD, Ethnic Studies, and Director of the Center for Global California Studies, will discuss the nation’s first successful school desegregation court case of 1930, which occurred in San Diego County’s own Lemon Grove. The lecture will provide an overview of the court case in the context of race desegregation in the U.S. prior to 1954 Brown vs. the Board. The presentation emphasizes the role of the Mexican-American and immigrant populations in U.S. school desegregation and features a docu-drama.
