"The Lemon Grove Incident" film screening and discussion on the importance of free speech with filmmaker Paul Espinosa.

Focusing on one of the earliest school desegregation cases in U.S. history, The Lemon Grove Incident utilizes a unique combination of dramatized scenes, documentary interviews, and historical footage. The film examines the response of the Mexican American community in Lemon Grove, California, to a 1930 school board attempt to create a segregated school for the Mexican American children of the district.
