The Longoria Affair

Three Rivers, Texas, 1945. The only funeral home in town refused to hold a wake for Felix Longoria, a decorated Mexican American soldier killed in battle during World War II. Longoria’s widow was told, simply, “The whites wouldn’t like it.” Nationwide outrage sparked the beginning of Latinos as a political force in the US.
