"The traffic center. Hey, good morning, John happy Sunday to you. We are off to a pretty happy Sunday start as far as our roadways are concerned. Nothing major happening on the beltway, the inner loop they had been working near the John Hansen highway X at 15 or 19, excuse me, and they had been along the left side at the beltway. Currently running at speed, there was an issue in the district on the southwest freeway 6 95 as you were heading eastbound toward the 11th street bridge near south capital street. We had a crash. We believe it should be clear, we're not seeing any real delays in our new camera shot. It's moving pretty well. And according to our cameras toward the district, what we can tell, no problems two 95, and that cost you crossings, the mall looks pretty decent. Tunnels across the mall, dear bridges over the Potomac as well. And if we check that, 66 from Rosalind through front royal and three 95 95 from the 14th street bridge to spottsylvania, no big issues. On the Maryland side, they had been working up the Chesapeake Bay bridge. We believe that should be picked up. They do have wind warnings at last report. No restrictions just hang on tight. The big story of the morning is the Baltimore Washington Parkway. If you're on your way to BWI, thurgood Marshall, keep this in mind. There is a crash investigation closing the Parkway between powder mill road, your diverted and one 97 is where you can get back on. So if you're heading to BWI thurgood Marshall, add a couple minutes or use 95. There are no issues in Maryland on 95 beltway to beltway.

"Home with salon pass. It's good medicine. Good morning, it's 6 38. Traffic and weather on the 8s now here's Mary de pampa in the traffic center. All righty, thanks, John. We'll just start by saying it. It's still Sunday morning, but you got a couple things that you need to watch out for one of which one accident currently on the beltway. It's on the Maryland side to the north. The outer loop you're hitting the brakes hard right at George avenue exit 31 and it's a slow roll to get past the temple around the curve saying to the left to get by. So you're getting all your lanes back before you get to the Connecticut avenue exit. Now it's a slow roll staying to the left right now, only one lane they're working hard to get another lane open, watch for the cars in front of you. There is a spill at the scene of an overturn tractor trailer. So that's what's happening, not a huge delay yet. We will monitor it. You should plan ahead if you join the beltway from Connecticut avenue, you put you on the outer loop past this incident. Nothing currently being reported east to west on Maryland 200 ICC. And for the most part, most interstate travel doing well on the Maryland side, nothing currently on two 70 and 95 beltway to beltway also running well. That's a great alternative to the Baltimore Washington Parkway, heads up if you're heading north toward BWI thurgood Marshall this morning all northbound Baltimore Washington traffic is diverting between route 32 and one 75. It is now a crash investigation. If you join the Parkway from one 75 to go north, you are beyond this issue, just be prepared. It's a hefty workaround. If you are on your way toward the

", brought to you by feeding America and the ad council. It's 6 28. And with traffic and weather on the 8s, he was married to pampa in the traffic center. All righty, thanks, John. And for the big picture, it's a Sunday morning. Most places you're headed, you will get their fun and on time, a couple of really sore spots. And unfortunately, two of which are on the Maryland side, the outer loop of the beltway are one incident, and it's a doozy, but between Georgia avenue exit 31 and Connecticut avenue X at 33. So just past the temple, temporary stops are possible equipment moving into the overturned tractor trailer. You should stay to the left to get by and possibly in a column of twos keep that in mind, but staying to the left at least to get by in a single lane follow direction there. The other incident on the Maryland side, if you're on your way to BWI, thurgood Marshall airport, heed my warning, northbound, Baltimore, Washington Parkway, all traffic is diverting between route 32 and one 75 due to a crash investigation affecting northbound only from one 75, you can go northbound on the Baltimore Washington Parkway. There's nothing on 95 beltway to beltway. The other big story is in the district on three 95 going eastbound, you're on to 6 95 southeast freeway, heading eastbound right at south capitol street, stay right to get by what is now a crash investigation married to Pompidou traffic. And your forecast from storm team four is Ryan Miller. We've got a coastal storm that is going to continue to introduce more cloud cover across the region for your day today, temperature wise. We're talking mid to upper 60s, and some scattered showers are possible from I 95 to points east

"And the traffic center. All righty, thanks and big picture if you're heading out and about this early Saturday morning and things to do. Be sure to have that extra time and stopping distance and stay prepared be alert that you might find some slippery conditions that we've heard of a few accidents, some have spun out and some have disappeared quickly. Others remain, the bottom line, not too much to watch for, but here's what we are watching currently. Southbound Baltimore, Washington Parkway, the big story out of Baltimore and the southbound ramp that would go to BWI thurgood Marshall exit one 95 east. That is blocked right now due to a crash on the ramp all traffic is coming down to go to one 95 and basically you could either go west and turn yourself around or continue south to the next exit route 100 and turn around as well. But if you're hearing this, you have a lot of options from 6 95 to get you toward the airport do plan ahead. That's a breakaway point, then once toward the beltway doing better, the crash that was south over top of the New York avenue U.S. 50 bridge. That has been cleared out of travel, so better news there, you're traveling well currently onto D.C. two 95. In 1995, nothing else reported there. We will continue on the Maryland side, a new wreck is in gambles on route three near saint Stephen's church road. Easy for you to say. They just sent a lot of equipment to seeing watching both directions until they land and figure out exactly where this is. Big trucks trying to cross the Chesapeake Bay bridge currently we are under wind restrictions deemed unsafe, you will be turned around this could be the MO through the day at our big bridges so be prepared and be sure to check in to plan ahead.

"Up in March. It's 6 18. Traffic and weather on the 8s back over to Mary de papa the traffic center. All right, thanks, Shan. We'll go straight back into Maryland a couple of issues have been reported on the Baltimore Washington Parkway. If you're traveling southbound and you need to get to one 95 BWI thurgood Marshall airport, you're going to follow police direction. We believe that ramp to the east is block we can not see this one. So if you're south, a lot of folks are opting to go west and turn themselves around, give yourself some extra time this morning heading to the airport. And then that becomes the breakaway point southbound as long as you're before the beltway. Once inside of the beltway south on the Parkway over top of 50 New York avenue crash sounds like it's a property damage accident, which means the emergency equipment was moving. So bottom line, your south, you'll hit the brakes, single lane was getting by the crash over top of 50 New York avenue, watch for possible police direction. They also ran for one and arundel county and Glenn Bernie, a southbound solo spin out and you're being able of art exit 16. This could be our MO for the morning. Now big trucks may be sticking to the interstate with the winds powerful and the big bridges right now, 50 across the bay bridge under wind restrictions. So if you're deemed unsafe, you're not able to pass, they will turn you around, so be prepared for big trucks as well on the interstate, a lot of them on the beltway right now, but no incidents reported that is both in Maryland and in Virginia. We're going to check now on the Virginia side of things where three 95 running southbound leaving the district near exit 8 for crystal city. There's a solo spin out right side of the roadway blocked in cam. So be sure to stay left move over an extra lane for safety and you're good to go beyond this point through the Springfield interchange and now all the way into spotsylvania county. We're going back inside of the beltway in Bethesda. It was rockfall pike three 55 heading north the ramp to the outer loop. That's where they find that crash to watch for possible police direction or units on scene, Mary to pump a WTO P traffic. Now over to Chad Merrill, storm team four meteorologist and Chad, what can we expect today with this reign? Well, the steadiest rain is moving north towards Frederick Maryland and Hagerstown.

No, I'm just kidding. I can't do that. I know. We really appreciate your calls. And thanks to bob. He was on the beltway. They find that wreck. Now bob says both sides between kenilworth avenue and the greenbelt metro, we've got two separate incidents, both blocking on the left side. So if you're on the beltway, either direction passing near the green belt metro station, stay to the right. You'll see flashing lights and a lot of equipment coming both ways. Now that's it for the Maryland side of the beltway. Our big story has been and continues to be a crash investigation on the inner loop in Virginia jammed out of tysons as you roll past Georgetown pike exit 44. It's just past the exit, single file to the left is getting by and that becomes the breakaway point for Virginia. We are going to go back into Maryland because our listeners on I 70 have also kept us updated. They have not moved on. I 70 as you're heading eastbound out of new markets, 75 year last chance. Any traffic beyond that point is still stopped the crash is right near the truck scales. They landed on both sides of the roadway. We can see far off in the distance and thanks Andrew for keeping us posted. It looks like it's on both sides of the road. It does appear they may be trying to consolidate right and we will try to keep you posted out of Baltimore two 95 still closed southbound before you get to 6 95. They're not letting on. Anybody on from 8 95 they were bleeding traffic that was stopped out to the left, so follow police direction. If you're on your way to BWI thurgood Marshall, you may want to stick with 95 beltway to beltway that is open. Now, just as a side bar, it is a nasty morning.

The first and foremost thing we should do is make it clear how outrageous this decision was and how much it impacts not just on women's right to choose, which is a critical critical piece. And on privacy generally, on privacy generally, he's right. And one last one, the president yesterday. The most important thing to be clear about is we have to change, I believe we have to codify roe V wade in the law and the way to do that is to make sure the Congress votes to do that.

You know, yesterday was a 36 year anniversary of the Supreme Court ruling on Bowers V hardwick, which criminalized private consensual same sex activity And Scalia. Really dirty if they all went for it. And looking at like thurgood Marshall, William Brennan, all the heroes opposed it, right? Rehnquist, the segregationists that Reagan made chief justice. He supported it. They banned gay sex only 36 years ago yesterday. They banned it. And they used privacy as their excuse by saying, well, there's private religious beliefs that overrule this and show how wrong this is. And they literally banned consenting adults from doing what they want to do in private. Only 36 years ago. At least you still have a husband, Travis. Yes. But it's the same thing now. What we're seeing now is a marriage of Bowers versus hardwick and the fugitive slave act. They're using all the old racism and bigotry. We are so by taking away women's rights. We're so happy to have a breeder in the studio. Yesterday was kind of a hilarious edition of lots of people calling to talk about birth control with three homos. And Travis and Dana Goldberg. Listen, no one loves being called a baby killer more than me. I'm always like you idiots. He's ten. I had so many chances to make it look like an accident. And I failed.

I just wanted you to tell him they stole this election we all know they will destroy our country decks. Please tell him to classify as much as possible so we can go after Biden and anyone else.

So in our private chat with only members several are saying the only way to save our republic is for Trump. Okay, so that part seems like kind of not stupid to me. Right.

Now they don't know history at all. Now the first black ever on the Supreme Court was thurgood Marshall. And then I believe clarence Thomas was the second. Is that correct? That's it. So there's been two black people on the Supreme Court in our history. Thurgood Marshall, and clarence Thomas. There's also one currently serving clarence Thomas. But Politico, which again was the one that helped get Joe Biden got elected because they covered up the entire story with Russia, Russian disinformation, smoke screen, tweeted out the following, quote, katangi Brown Jackson will likely be confirmed as the first black Supreme Court Justice by the end of this week. Here's how we'll expect it to go. How these people went to college, which is exactly why they don't know anything. Kandy Brown Jackson will likely be confirmed as the first black Supreme Court Justice by the end of this week, Politico tweeted that out. They deleted the tweet and then tweeted this correction quote for the record. This replaces an earlier tweet that stated kanji Brown Jackson could be the first black Supreme Court Justice. It should have said first black female Supreme Court Justice we apologize for the error. I could have wrote that for them. We knew what was happening. Senator Mike Lee ripped them, play cut 22. Earlier today, there was a Politico tweet Politico sent out a tweet reading his follows, saying kitani Brown Jackson will likely be confirmed as the first black Supreme Court Justice by the end of this week.

"Fundamentally the 6 three is in and of itself, the only thing ratio that matters. Yeah, well, it's important to note that, of course, every court is going to be different depending on the individuals that are on that. So certainly having different individuals and individuals different experiences and different politics are going to have some kind of effect. And it is notable to that briar was considered more of a moderate liberal he used strive for consensus was seen as more of a centrist. So someone coming in with so further left views could could change things a bit on that. And it's important to note to you, the justice is obviously our involvement selecting which cases come to the court as well as the opinions that they make and the way those opinions are written. So certainly the individuals do have an impact on that. With that said, again, some of these big issues that come up before the court regarding abortion, gun rights, affirmative action. I think those 6 three split or sometimes a 5 four depending on how Roberts goes on certain things. It's unlikely that those issues will swing in the other direction just with a new kind of appointment, but some of the conversations around them might look a little bit different than they would with breyer and then with a new nominee. Now, Julie my sort of playful question was about well, I was going to invoke the name of president taft, who I think I'm right in saying is the only former president to subsequently serve on the Supreme Court. Is that right? I'm sure you would know these things. Could Biden not just show an absolute crazy curve ball in there and nominate a Barack Obama to serve? I don't want to be flipping about serious issue, but that would be kind of amazing. Clearly though it would never happen. That is a very playful question. I don't know that Obama is looking for that role necessarily. And I mean, it is important. He's well qualified, isn't he? He would be well qualified. I will say, you know, Biden was pretty specific about wanting to nominate a black woman. There haven't been blackmails who have served on the court before Karen's Thomas is a current justice, thurgood Marshall, obviously in the past. So it was important for Biden and for some of his liberal supporters to have a black woman in that position. So that will be my answer to that. But I think even if he was getting pressure for Obama, he leaned back into his promise. Yeah, no, I appreciate it. You took that question in the spirit that was intended, Julie. Thanks so for joining us. And I'm picking that one for us. That was the U.S. political expert Julie Norman joining us here on the briefing. Just.

Viola Davis and Chadwick Boseman star in 'Ma Rainey'

"The enter chadwick. Boseman died of cancer in august at the age of forty three not long after he finished shooting the movie mall. Rainey's black bottom now streaming on netflix. The movie stars viola. Davis is the famous blue singer mall rainy and was adapted from august. Wilson's play our film critic. Justin chang says that boseman's final screen performance ranks among his very best. One reason chadwick boseman was such. An extraordinary actor was his ability to command the screen without hogging the spotlight. His presence was so quietly magnetic that even when he played real life. Heroes like jackie robinson and thurgood marshall or fictional ones like king to challa in black panther. He still seemed like the most self effacing of movie stars but boseman could also go big like when he took on james brown in the musical bio-pic get on up and gave his most electrifying performance. Until now it's devastating. That ma rainey's black bottom is the last new. Boseman movie will ever see this. Excellent adaptation of august wilson's nineteen eighty to play from the director george c wolfe and the screenwriter ruben. Santiago hudson is both a precious parting gift and a punch in the gut even more than get on up. Boseman holds nothing back. He emptied himself out onscreen. He plays levy a gifted and ambitious trumpet player struggling to forge his way in a white man's world or this case a white man's recording studio where most of the movie takes place. It's a sweltering hot day in nineteen twenty seven chicago in the pioneering southern blues singer ma rainey played by a superb viola. Davis is planning to record some of her most popular songs. Mas name may be in the place title. But she isn't the main narrative focus here much of the story unfolds while the four musicians in her band are waiting for her to show up at the studio. During the rehearsal session cutler the guitar and trombone player played by colman. Domingo wants to stick with their usual arrangement for a particular song but levy wants to use a new edgier version that he composed. It doesn't take long for the arguments to start and the egos to emerge. How's your name in. So i just played a piece whatever they want them. Criticizing the people's music like you. I got talent. Oh man is we tagged. My dad had a note. I was gonna turn out like the name mccabe. I'm going to give me a bad and make some shots. I don't give them instead of my. I wrote and he say going to let me record when i get my band together. I just got last part of song. I got stopped or everybody gets out there. And other keeping the same idea from the beginning in everybody got a game plan for all his outward swagger boseman later lays bare. The anguish beneath levies self-assured grin in a spellbinding monologue about his southern childhood. He reveals the acts of violence that were committed against his family by a gang of white men he's witnessed unspeakable horrors and fought hard for his shot at success. And he's not about to let anyone stand in his way not even marini herself when she finally shows up at the studio via davis who won an oscar for her work. In another wilson. Adaptation fences is magnificent. Here in the kind of full throated diva showcase. She's rarely taken on becoming more rainy. Required quite the transformation davis wears a padded rubber suit and sports. A mouthful of gold teeth and her vocals are supplied by the singer. Maxine lewis but the performance never feels needlessly. Flashy and davis is best moments are the ones in which she shows us. Ma rainey's anxious calculating side when she stops the recording session because no one's brought her the bottle of coke she always insists on before singing. She isn't just causing a fuss. Exactly what she's worth and how much power she commands in a predominantly white male industry and she's determined to push yourself right up to that line without crossing it marines. Black bottom is one of ten plays in august. Wilson's epic pittsburgh cycle and the only one that isn't actually set in pittsburgh wilson's insights into the complexities of twentieth century. African american experience cemented his reputation as one of this country's greatest dramatists. The filmmakers haven't opened up the material in the manner of so many stage to screen adaptations if anything they've ruthlessly tightened the play and paired it down to essentials wolf directs at a furious clip. The sets are spare even drab which has the effect of your concentration on the performances and while boseman and davis are the stars of the show. Every actor gets a chance to shine including michael potts as the bass player. Slow drag and glenn termine reprising his role as the pianist toledo from twenty sixteen revival at the heart of the play is the bond between levy a fictional creation and rainy. A real life figure. The two are antagonistic by nature levy keeps trying to put his own stamp on mas music and he makes the mistake of trying to seduce. Her young girlfriend played by taylor. Page but levy and ma are also kindred spirits. They're both trying to make authentic commercially viable art with an assistant bent on exploiting their talents but levy doesn't have martinis experience or her knack for self preservation and the weight of his past trauma ultimately proves too much to overcome the climax is hunting beyond words were seeing a man peering into an abyss played by an actor who knew his own life was slipping away chadwick.

Politicians, Constance Baker Motley

"Hello from Wonder Media Network I'm Jenny Kaplan and this is encyclopedia Britannica. Today's politicians but most of her life fighting for civil rights, she put her life at risk to change the course of American history, but she's often left out of history books. Let's talk about Constance Baker Motley. Constance Baker Motley was born on September fourteenth nineteen, forty one in new haven connecticut she was one of twelve children born to working class immigrant parents from the West indies. Constance. Was a bright child who grew up attending integrated schools and quickly fell in love with reading. She didn't learn much about black history in school. But what she did learn about civil rights leaders inspired her she decided she wanted to become a lawyer, but constance couldn't afford higher education. She took a job as a maid for a while before moving on to work for the National Youth Administration an organization focused on providing work an educational opportunities for young adults. Constance was giving a speech at a local community center one evening when her oratory skills impressed a wealthy white philanthropist. He, offered to pay for constants college tuition. So in nineteen, forty, one constance began attending college at Fisk University in Nashville. She later wrote that the train ride down to Tennessee was the first time she experienced overt racism and Jim Crow laws after being forced to ride in a broken down segregated train car, it was a perspective changing moment for constance two years into her attendance at Fisk Constance transferred to New York University and finished her bachelor's degree in economics. Then in nineteen, forty, four constance became the first black woman to be accepted to Columbia law school. After graduating from Columbia in nineteen, forty, six constants worked for the NWC peas legal staff under Thurgood. Marshall who later became a court justice over the course of her work at the N. double ACP constance assisted with almost sixty cases that ended up reaching the Supreme Court. She also personally argued ten supreme court cases and one nine. Constance is work integrated multiple southern state universities putting her toe-to-toe with racist governors determined to bar black students from schools. She also helped protect the right to peaceful protests and opened up parks for. Black. Americans. She did all that despite the sexism and racism personally experienced during her legal career. Some judges actually turned their backs on her and refused to hear her speak. But Constance didn't let others biopsies bar her from success. Her work made her a key player in the civil rights movement and she even occasionally represented Dr. Martin? Luther. King Junior. Constance was constantly in danger when she was working in the south racists threatened her life and the lives of other prominent figures in the black community constance was barred from staying in hotels. So she had to stay with local activists, but even that didn't make her feel completely safe her friend Mississippi civil rights leader Medgar. Evers. was murdered his own driveway. So in nineteen, sixty, five constance left her work in the south and moved back to New York City. Shortly thereafter, she became the first black woman to serve in the New York State Senate. She was also elected president of the borough of Manhattan which made her the first woman in that role. During her time as a politician constance focused on raising up under served communities in the city like Harlem and East Harlem in nineteen sixty, six president Lyndon Johnson appointed constance to the US.

So we have assembled an all star legal panel today that also reflects how Supreme Court should look it probably also think here to break it all the way down like a fraction are Kristen Clark President and Executive Director of the National Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law Christopher. Kane. Chief counsel of demand Justice Ellie Misao justice correspondent at the nation and Tina Johnson President and CEO of times up. Hello everybody. Angela. Thank you so much for being here. So I want to start with giving honor where honor is due in. That is to start with Ruth Bader GINSBURG who we lost on September. Eighteenth. I feel like she held on just as long as she possibly could end for that I say thank you. To our BG to the to the real story is and I just wanted to give you all the opportunity to share some thoughts on route Baiter ins, birds passing on her impact in jurisprudence in which he wrote some phenomenal opinions including just two words, I dissent and you know anything else on your hearts to share about that because then we're going to get into the battle that is the Supreme Court nominations but I really WanNa give her some some time just do. Well, if you're a lover of justice than you definitely are feeling this, you're feeling the loss of Justice Ginsburg on the court right now having been inside the court was always great to see her in action. She was always an active questioner questioner always asking all of the tough questions and and really pushing. The. The Orleans before her. I also think though about Thurgood Marshall and what he meant for the court and Thurgood Marshall is somebody who dedicated his career to the practice of civil rights law when he was appointed in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, seven, and justice Ginsburg frank lease the only a second civil rights lawyer to sit on the court. So right now we're at a moment where there's that void that vacancy in terms of somebody brings that lens to the issues that come before the court. So for me that really matters because we're not getting that with this nominee has been put forward. I'm. Christian I agree with you completely, I mean this this her career even before she got on the court is astonishing in all of us who are working women who are women who can sign around credit card applications and hold a mortgage in our own name and pursue our careers including. Alexis. Johnson wrote this morning you know including the current nominee to the court. We are -bility to do that to repair Berg I mean she dreamed up the idea that the equal protection clause should cover women equally as we weren't in there we were you know the kinds of. Laws kept women out of the economic life of our country. Were not challenged until she had the foresights quite frankly and the legal ability to think that up and percents that and so even before she got on the court Mike Thurgood, Marshall's she had transformed landscape forever for all of us and my dog is Getting this okay. Tina go ahead see. My my story about Ginsburg is is a personal one. So I was in high school I was on trial and a week with states or nationals whatever and one of the guest judges was at school year. And then after the thing he he gave a talk for for the kids and we got to ask questions I asked him a question and answering made fun of. I I asked him how he squared his opinions about originalist. I didn't know what was called originalism. Downing intangible whatever. But how he's wearing those opinions. Brownie. Be Bored event, which was obviously against the original intent of the founding slavers. Yet like super important right and he laughed at me and then everybody else laughed and you're like I. Don't know what they're teaching school and everybody else. A bunch of jokes and then some like really not really credible answer I would later. So he kind of any make of me dismissing it is sat down kind of embarrassed son how GINSBURG heard this story? I am magid now that since they were friends was probably bragging. Point about how? Of. This seventeen year old or sixteen year old. But anyway she's GonNa Message to remark. That was held back. Kids they keep descending. which you know is again, I didn't even realize how awesome and amazing was. Sixteen seventeen year old kid. But it really to me goes to show that at even kind of social setting in A. In a private setting as it must have been for her earth the story. The her her commitment to raising credible questions and raising the sense not backing down She lived at right and she gave me a nice little note when I was a kid. To keep trying.

How Have Hispanic Americans Helped Shape the U.S.?

"Brain Steph Lauryn Boban here. Here in the United States, it's Hispanic heritage month, which officially began as Hispanic Heritage Week in nineteen, sixty eight. Unlike many other campaigns that observe and honor the contributions of a particular group of Americans Hispanic heritage bump run throughout. September. But rather starts on September fifteenth and continues through mid. October. So, why does it start in the middle of the month? Well, a Costa Rica El Salvador Guatemala Honduras. Nicaragua. All celebrate their Independence Day on September fifteenth. Mexico's is on September Sixteenth Chili's is September eighteenth and believes independence. Day Is September twenty first. By, stretching into October, the holiday also includes de la Raza on October twelve, which is a kind of rejection of Columbus Day because of Christopher, Columbus's many crimes against humanity and see our episode on Columbus Day for more about that. De la Rosa instead celebrates the melding of Hispanic races or Raza, and cultures. In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, let's talk about three times at Hispanic Americans have changed the course of history. Some three hundred years after Spanish, conquerors became the first non native Americans to view the Mississippi River and later the Grand Canyon one host. Jeff Marianne Hernandez helps smooth transfer of the territory of Florida into US rule Florida was still part of Spain when Hernandez was born in Saint Augustine in seventeen eighty four. But that changed when he was selected to serve in the House of Representatives and was sworn into duty in eighteen, twenty three as the first Hispanic person to serve in. Congress. In historical context Hernandez being a slave owner is a controversial figure. Still. He remains the first one, hundred twenty eight Hispanic people to serve in the. US Congress. Maybe of more relevance today is the first Hispanic senator elected to a full term in Congress. New Mexico's Dennis Shabas in nineteen thirty five. We spoke with Paul Orbits Historian at the University of Florida. He said in addition to being the first American born Hispanic senator. He's critical for the time we live in because he fought on behalf of all working class. Equally, he fought for higher wages legislation he fought for people to have the right to organize a union he fought for more progress and you as foreign policy for Latin America he organized N. Double ACP leaders against Jim Crow Segregation. Then, a Chevette as one of those people we can use Hispanic heritage month to talk about our connection other people's democratic struggles. Today's Congress. The one hundred sixteenth has forty seven members of Hispanic heritage. Hispanic Americans also helped turn the tide of the civil war. Some twenty thousand were involved in the conflict. While some in the southeast sided with the confederacy especially those who came from wealthy families with plantations or other businesses in Louisiana Alabama more supported the union. or it said a lot of Mexican American soldiers fought on the side of the Union army in the southwest and actually helped defeat the confederacy in the southwest. Hispanic people in the West back the Mexican government to and celebrated the country's defeat of the French at the battle of Puebla on May fifth of sixty two single Demayo in a victory that may have helped prevent the French from siding with the confederacy and thus ultimately helping the Union win. A bit more modern only about eight years before the US Supreme Court ruled in Brown versus the Board of Education, that segregation in public schools is unconstitutional as Spanish schoolgirl showed the way. Sylvia Mendez a Puerto Rican and Mexican heritage was just eight years old when she and her brothers were denied enrollment into the white only Westminster School district in Orange County in nineteen, forty three. At the time about eighty percent of California, school districts were segregated. Her Parents Gonzalo. Felicitas Mendez enlisted other parents to fight the decision and they took the school board to court. After appeals that were abandoned short of the US Supreme Court Mendez Versus Westminster became the first successful federal school desegregation case in the nation that was in nineteen, forty seven. The case was important arguing that segregation itself even if schools were separate but equal was harmful unconstitutional under the fourteenth amendment specifically, the clause, the calls for protection of the laws for all citizens. In appeals Sylvia's case was argued by Thurgood Marshall who went on to argue for the
