Dr. Enrique Alemán, Jr., The University of Texas at San Antonio
Enrique Alemán, Jr., Ph.D., is the Executive Producer and Co-Writer of Stolen Education, a documentary about the forgotten history of a little-known court case from the 1950s, Hernandez et al. v. Driscoll Consolidated School District. In 1956 eight elementary students testified in a federal desegregation court case. As Mexican Americans, they were placed in three years of first grade as a way to discriminate against them by the all White school board, administration and faculty. Stolen Education documents the journey to recapture the remarkable story of the schoolchildren who changed educational history in Texas and confronts the continued inequity in public schools today.
