HIST 4331 Mexican-American Civil Rights

This course will examine the history of Mexican-American civil rights from the Wagner Act (1935) to the Civil Rights Act (1964). Students will evaluate the institutions, organizations, and people who fought for the equality and integration of Mexican Americans in the American Southwest. We will assess the different roles that these historical actors played in the struggle for citizenship rights against the larger backdrop of the Great Depression, World War II and Cold War eras.
