Parents as Observers In Canvas
National Hispanic Heritage Month
It is National Hispanic Heritage Month. Hispanic Heritage Month is a period from September 15th to October 15th in the United States. Every week we would like to pay tribute to the generations of Hispanic Americans who have positively influenced and enriched our nation and society. We will showcase two individuals each time. This week we would like to share the following two people and their contributions so that we can celebrate and learn about their efforts.
By Joel Foster
Octaviano Larrazolo – 1st elected Hispanic US senator
Born in 1859 in Allende, in the Mexican state of Chihuahua, Octaviano Larrazolo would go on to influence the US thinking on Hispanic issues. Larrazolo came to Arizona in 1875 with Reverend J.B. Salpointe, who taught Larrazolo theology. Larrazolo taught in Tucson for a year before eventually settling in Las Vegas, New Mexico, and became involved with the state’s Democratic Party. Working his way up the political chain, Larrazolo was elected Governor of New Mexico in 1918. He was then elected to the Senate in 1928, becoming the first Hispanic to accomplish such a feat. Sadly, Larrazolo fell ill soon after taking office and died just six months into his term. But the unfortunate end didn’t prevent Octaviano Larrazolo from making his permanent mark on Hispanic and US history.
Sylvia Mendez – Paved the way for school desegregation in the US
Sylvia Mendez was born in 1936 and grew up at a time when Hispanics were sent to “Mexican schools” and not allowed to attend schools designated for “Whites Only.” Realizing the white schools had to access to better books and other educational benefits, Sylvia’s aunt wished for her family to attend a white school. The aunt was told that her lighter-skinned children could attend the school but the eight-year-old Sylvia could not because her skin was darker. After Sylvia was denied enrollment to the white school, her parents sued the California public school system. After years of litigation, Sylvia was finally allowed to attend and became the first Hispanic to enroll in a “Whites Only” school. The case paved the way for the more well-known Brown v. Board of Education case less than ten years later. In 2011, President Obama awarded Mendez with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the country’s highest civilian honor.
