I read in the SA Life last year about a article that in May 1968 , there was a student walk-out that took place at Edgewood High School. Did anyone hear about it on the local television, particapted it in, or saw it take place ?

That was very interesting to read. Thank you both for sharing! I had never really knew much about the 1968 walkout in Edgewood.

I didn't believe this would happend. Would it have been possible at NEISD, NISD, AHISD in 1968. It might have been possible in 1968, it was year where the whole country was changing extremely fast.

something tells me that those school districts that you referenced probably did not suffer the same injustices that the edgewood and san antonio school districts suffered. When you've had enough, it's time to take it to the streets. i'm very grateful to those who demonstrated.

My Father grew up in Edgewood and he would tell me the stories of what would happen every time you said something in Spanish to your classmates or came to school with carnitas for lunch. It was downright disgraceful and shocking to hear for someone like me who didnt have to face those types of injustices in school.

I was trying to make a point. If there was Latino students in those districts in 1968 , and there were treated 'unfairly' it would have been a lot of differenent.

SAMustang91, be careful to be so harsh, your tone is judgemental, and you don't have any idea of what went on, your point? how can YOU make one. You can seek opinions. I am up to my neck in today's generation leaning on the people of the 60's, 50's, and before and saying they have a right to different treatment because of something that happened back then. Ask, and you'll get opinions, you got one, accept it, that person has a right to that opinion, just as you have a right to yours. Thats what makes this a free country where we allow all to be treated fairly.

I could swear I saw a T.V. movie about this. It was an excellent movie. Thanks for sharing.
