Product Notes

In the tiny town of Edna Texas in 1951 a field hand named Pete Hernandez murdered his employer after exchanging words in a gritty cantina. From this unremarkable small-town murder emerged a landmark civil rights case that would forever change the lives and legal standing of tens of millions of Americans. A Class Apart tells the little-known story of a band of underdog Mexican-American lawyers who took their case Hernandez v. Texas all the way to the Supreme Court where they successfully challenged Jim Crow-style discrimination against Mexican-Americans.
