Single DVD

A documentary on the Mexican American civil rights movement. The film tells the story of one key injustice - the refusal, by a small-town funeral home in Texas after World War II, to care for a dead soldier's body "because the whites wouldn't like it" - and shows how the Incident sparked outrage nationwide, and contributed to the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

Comments about PBS Independent Lens: The Longoria Affair DVD:

Boy was I surprised when I saw this. My father was involved with the GI forum at the time and made us aware of the indecent and had great respect and admiration for LBJ. I sincerely wish all Hispanics could view this especially the young.

Comments about PBS Independent Lens: The Longoria Affair DVD:

Born and raised from a small Texas town myself, I was able to better understand and depict these old tensions within a small community that are related to discrimination, but yet capture what political leaders are capable of achieving through experienced leadership. I, personally had a wonderful opportunity to meet Mr. John Valadez, the producer and director of this documentary, at my current college at Texas A&M University in Kingsville, Texas, last fall and I was inspired by his works. I encourage anyone who is interested or learning about 'Civil Rights' to view this film. Thank you PBS for great customer service, I [...] was completely pleased.
