El Modena High School Library Re-named Lorenzo Ramirez
The El Modena High School Library has been re-named Lorenzo Ramirez Library for the Civil Rights hero that sued the El Modeno School District in the 1940's for discrimination against Mexican schools. Lorenzo Ramirez was one of 5 families who sued under the famous Mendez et al vs. Westminster lawsuit that ended segregation against Mexican Americans in Orange County. The Library has historical and family items from the trial. The public is invited to see the display. I was on the Ramirez Committee that negotiated with the Orange Unified School District to change the name.
