View all copies of this ISBN edition:

In a case of segregation that was unofficial but as strict as any in the American South, Aliso School in Carpinteria, California, was segregated from the 1920s until 1947. Mexican-American children were not allowed to attend classes in the town's Main School, regardless of birth right or what neighborhood they lived in. Their school history has not been fully discussed until now. The author includes numerous interviews with former Aliso students and extensive research of newspaper articles, school records and local historic archives.
