Because You Can’t Know Where You’re Going Unless You Know Where You’ve Been

Tolerance.org has put together a great Latino Civil Rights Timeline in preparation for Latino Heritage Month, which begins on September 15th.

This is a great tool to help us appreciate the struggle for Latino civil rights and the obstacles faced by immigrants in the U.S. today.

From their site:

Latino Civil Rights Timeline, 1903 to present

The following timeline documents dozens of key Latino civil rights events between 1903 and 2006.

When reading this timeline, it’s important to remember that the fight for civil rights doesn’t happen in a vacuum. In many cases, the events listed below have fueled – and have been fueled by – other social justice movements, like the African American Civil Rights Movement and the fight for equal employment and education among Chinese and Japanese immigrants.

The Latino civil rights struggle did not begin in 1903 and will not end in September 2006. Watch the news and listen to politicians, and you will see the fight for equal rights for ALL people is not over.
