Comments about PBS American Experience: A Class Apart DVD:

I am Hispanic and did not know any of this history after watching this it sadden me to know that so many of Hispanics were mistreated but at the same time glad that we had intelligent and brave people that fought a great fight to give us the privilege to enjoy this freedom. bought it and showed it to my children. Awesome film

I enjoyed learning about this very important segment of American society. It is a very relevant and needed piece of history for all to view, especially here in Texas.

Don't Let This Town Fool You!

By Echo

from Kingwood, Texas

Comments about PBS American Experience: A Class Apart DVD:

I am Hispanic and Edna is my hometown. Graduated in 1970 from Edna High School. Even then, it was a big no-no to date a white girl. In matter of fact, it was unheard of to even think of that possibility. When I was in the 8th grade, the Blacks were intergraded with the rest of us. Tensions were high among the white and black students. Not so much for us Hispanics. Sure, things are different now in Edna when it comes to inter-racial marriages. But...
the Redneck atmosphere still exists through the town. Even in the courts and daily politics of this small town.

A DVD that is a must!

Comments about PBS American Experience: A Class Apart DVD:

This does an excellent job of explaining Mexican Americans and their struggle for equality. If you are a teacher who does the Civil Rights Movement, you need this to finish that unit.

Companion to Brown v Board of Education

By diversity

from Cincinnati,OH

Verified Buyer

Comments about PBS American Experience: A Class Apart DVD:

This dvd should be paired with " Eyes on the Prize" or "Brown v. Board of Education"! It explains the discrimination faced by Mexican-Americans in Texas at the very same time as African-Americans were fighting for their rights across the US. It should be seen together not as "A Class Apart".
