Escuelitas and the Emergence of a Mexican American Identity in South Texas: A Conversation with Dr. Philis Barragán Goetz

Join the Westside Preservation Alliance and the Esperanza for the third event of our Westside Community History & Preservation Speaker Series!

This series will explore community history and historic preservation in communities of color!

From the 1880s to shortly after World War II, escuelitas, or little schools, could be found across South Texas. Mostly run by women who taught Spanish literacy, Mexican history, and sometimes English proficiency, the schools were a reaction to South Texas’ segregated Mexican schools where pupils were forbidden from speaking Spanish, and Mexican American history was either excluded from the curriculum or demeaned by the teachers. Escuelitas filled in the gaps in schooling and built pride among Mexican American children. Dr. Barragan will share locations of escuelitas in South Texas and stories of the teachers and children associated with them.
