Separate Is Never Equal is a really good picture book about school desegregation in the Mendez court case in California for Mexican American citizens. From the start of the book, it details the harassment students of color faced at that time in an engaging way. This book talks about the civil rights movement from another lens that students may not know about or have talked about in depth. I think this book would be really good for 8th grade, even through its a picture book, because students have a little more clarity on the Civil Rights movement and can see it from another students perspective. This book can also be a great model for creating discussions about other minority groups at this time, and expand students idea of the role latinx people in the Civil Rights movement. ( )

This book is about when Sylvia Mendez and her family moved to the town of Westminster, California. She was very excited about enrolling in her new school. Although her and her brothers were told no and told they had to attend the Mexican school instead. She did not know why because she was a U.S citizens and spoke english perfectly. The Mendez family decided to take it upon themselves and file a lawsuit. This was seven years before Brown v. Board of Education. I think this is a great book to read in a history class when learning about the civil rights movement. It is a powerful story that shows the horrible truth of what happened in our history. ( )

This informational text introduces young learners to the multi-layered, complex history of school desegregation, even prior to Brown v. BOE. Sylvia Mendez and her family’s story adds a much needed chapter to the narrative. Author’s Note, Primary Source Photos, Glossary, Bibliography.

When Sylvia Mendez and her family moved from Santa Ana, California to nearby Westminster in 1944, they discovered that the local educational authorities would not allow Sylvia and her brothers to attend the town's well-funded school, instead insisting that they go to the far inferior "Mexican School." After failing to convince the authorities that his children should attend the public school near where they lived, Sylvia's father, Gonzalo Mendez, began to organize a petition against segregation in the schools of Orange County. Eventually he enlisted the help of lawyer David Marcus, and the Mendez vs. Westminster case began. In 1947, seven years before Brown vs. the Board of Education struck down segregated schooling nationally, the California courts decided, in response to the Mendez case, to outlaw segregation in their state's schools...

Separate Is Never Equal: Sylvia Mendez and Her Family's Fight for Desegregation provides an important addition to the body of works devoted to the Civil Rights Movement in the United States, highlighting a legal case that provided the basis for the better known Brown vs. the Board of Education. I was not familiar with this story, and am very glad indeed to have that gap in my knowledge corrected. The story of Sylvia and her family is an inspiring one, and it highlights, not just the idea that standing up for justice can bring people of disparate backgrounds together - something emphasized in the story, through Sylvia's mother and her wise words - but also that every advance in freedom and equality is built upon the work of earlier people. It is unfortunate, but I think many, both children and adults, have an atomized view of history, often seeing certain developments in isolation, rather than as part of a rich tapestry of events. Author/illustrator Duncan Tonatiuh's book works to correct this myopic view, and it tells a story important in its own right as well - a story about standing up to racism and segregation. I appreciated both the story, which I found educational and moving, in equal measure; and the illustrations, done by Tonatiuh in his signature folk-art style, which owes so much to pre-Columbian Mesoamerican aesthetic traditions. The back matter, which includes an author's note, photographs on Sylvia Mendez and her family, a glossary, bibliography and index, provides additional information. Recommended to readers looking for children's books about the struggle to desegregate American schools. It could be paired very nicely with titles like The Story of Ruby Bridges, about one of the African-American children who desegregated the New Orleans schools in 1960. ( )
