      Todos iguales/All Equal: Un corrido de Lemon Grove/A Ballad of Lemon Grove

      by Christy Hale

      Oct 2019

      Spanish Elementary

      Ten-year-old Roberto Álvarez loved school. He, his siblings, and neighbors attended the Lemon Grove School along with the white children from nearby homes. The children studied and played together as equals.

      In the summer of 1930, the Lemon Grove School Board decided to segregate the Mexican American students. The board claimed the children had a "language handicap" and needed to be "Americanized." When the Mexican families learned of this plan, they refused to let their children enter the new, inferior school that had been erected. They formed a neighborhood committee and sought legal help. Roberto, a bright boy who spoke English well, became the plaintiff in a suit filed by the Mexican families. On March 12, 1931, the case of Roberto Álvarez v. the Board of Trustees of the Lemon Grove School District was decided. The judge ruled in favor of the children's right to equal education, ordering that Roberto and all the other Mexican American students be immediately reinstated in the Lemon Grove School.

      This nonfiction bilingual picture book, written in both English and Spanish, tells the empowering story of The Lemon Grove Incident--a major victory in the battle against school segregation, and a testament to the tenacity of an immigrant community and its fight for equal rights.



      Music and lyrics for “Un corrido de Lemon Grove (A Ballad of Lemon Grove).” “Before the Lemon Grove Case.” List of court case participants and photographs. “After the Ruling.” Note on corridos. Quotation sources. Bibliography. Illustration note. Full-color illustrations rendered in gouache and relief printing inks.
