One of the milestone events in the Mexican American Civil Rights Movement in 1968, the East Los Angeles Thirteen: 12 Latino students and 1 teacher, organized a walk out protest of over 20,000 students from the LA school district. Their protest over inadequate Latino education landed them in jail where they were abandoned until one lawyer came forward in the name of justice.
