Summary
"Traces the story of Tejanos and their efforts to secure their civil rights and expand their social and economic opportunities through the legislative process. The documentary opens with an overview of the role Texas Mexicans played in the independence and political organization of early Texas and explains how, as a group, Tejanos were gradually excluded from political power by the early 20th century. The film then turns its attention to the Civil Rights Movement, during which Mexican American organizations in Texas led the fight for greater inclusion, overcoming barriers to full citizenship, such as the poll tax, segregated schools, and discriminatory labor and police practices. Through interviews with a number of retired and present-day Tejano legislators, the story of the Caucus and its increasing influence in state affairs unfolds from its founding in the early 1970s to the present"--Container
