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

"The now back to the story are second. Suspect is Walter Sickert to famous for his macabre artwork exposing the lives of those living in and around White Chapel sicker. It became quite popular artists in England and eventually painted with Winston Churchill. But before that Sickert was born in Germany in eighteen sixty and moved to England when he was only six he eagerly pursued art eventually teaching it at Westminster School of art but it was his interest in portraying the darker aspects of Victorian Life. That drew him to exploring the subjects of sex workers and even murderers secret became fascinated with jack the ripper during his reign of terror which prompted secret to paint the peace. Jack The ripper bedroom. It's a chilling portrait of a faceless man backlit in a dark room so as secret fascination with the white chapel murderer more telling than at first glance. We think it's possible and we're not alone. Famed Crime Writer Patricia. Cornwell published a book entitled Portrait of a killer. Jack The ripper case closed. That sounds pretty definitive. Well Cornwell assembled a team of forensic specialists to run tests on DNA samples collected from some potential. Jack The ripper correspondence. It should be noted that the letters were never confirmed to have been written and sent by Jack The ripper. Dna was extracted from them. Yes my conrail. Dna to be exact and the investigation revealed that the DNA found on the letters matched some of the strains found on letters. Secret had sent so the team compared secrets DNA with the DNA found on random. Jack The ripper letters that may or may not have been written by the killer himself exactly which gives us a possible link but not a definitive one right. We have to address that it is possible Walter. Sickert sent the supposed Jack. The ripper letters that matched his DNA since most of the letters if not all were deemed hoaxes anyway. Well that is part of the equation. Yes but there is more that suggests sicker could have been responsible for the killings. It is believed that may have had a fistula on his penis for those who don't know a Fistula is an abnormal connection or passageway that connects to organs or vessels. That shouldn't normally connect some and this would include Patricia. Cornwell believed that this abnormality on its penis may have made him impotent or at the very least it could've frustrated him sexually and compromised his sense of masculinity. This could manifest in anger directed at the opposite sex or a need to express his sexual desires in a way other than sex. You mean like lust driven murder took the words right out of my mouth so basically it is the potentially incriminating DNA evidence and these biological defect that suggests sicker could have been the infamous Jack. Well we can't forget his artistic obsession with Jack in the killings. That is irrefutable so it is and that leads us to our third suspect the one we're most confident. Our final vote for Jack. The ripper. Here's what you need to know. I in eighteen ninety four six years after Mary. Kelly's murder Melville mcnaughton. The chief constable of Scotland Yard published the mcnaughton memoranda. This document detailed three top suspects according to mcnaughton and his insider information we however only going to focus on the one we believe has any real credibility that man is drum roll please Aaron Kuzminsky Kozminski was born in eighteen. Sixty five in Russian controlled Poland where he spent most of his childhood. His family eventually emigrated to London around eighteen. Eighty one but it's his humble beginnings that shaped him most growing up under Russian rule at that time meant living in extreme poverty and oppression and witnessing violence and brutality daily he most likely experienced this hatred in the community which could have shaped his outlook on humanity. As a whole Mahoney mean Vanessa. Someone who grows up in a negative environment marked by social hatred can develop a mindset in which violent acts against others become excusable normal even this would lead Kuzminsky to self justify any cruelty or crimes he committed besides the harsh social environment. His family and his world basically consisted mostly of women. He was the only boy in a family of several sisters. His father either died or abandoned. The family before the unit moved to London so we didn't really have a strong male presence in his life someone to whom he could relate and go to with his male centered questions. Well that's very interesting. Because an absent father figure was noted in the Nineteen eighty-eight FBI profile of Jack. The ripper it's right. And it is also generally very common for serial killers to have grown up without a strong male authority figure in their lives so the absence of a father and his teenage years was probably already very damaging but if we take into consideration the fact that he was surrounded by women who were all his relatives things get even more interesting growing up the way he did in confined housing in the poor slums of Russia. Kuzminsky most likely had to share a bed with his sisters. There is a possibility that Kuzminsky may have developed sexual feelings towards his sisters just by virtue of being in very close proximity to them while he was going through puberty. If we look at this aspect mixed with the violence and crime he most likely witnessed in the community he could have been prone to merge these strange sexual feelings with violence with the signs of very well with Jack's crimes driven by lust and hatred of women he sought to destroy the Feminine Form Not Respect or preserve it mcnaughton alluded to this in his memoranda. This man became insane owing to many years indulgence in solitary vices. He had a great hatred of women especially the prostitutes class and had strong homicidal tendencies following the murders in eighteen. Ninety one Kozminski was admitted to coney hatch asylum. He had apparently not worked for years but may have for some time. Been a barber. The police surgeon Dr Bond Crafts to report after examining Mary. Kelly's body when we look at the document. Now we can see that Dr Bond was demonstrating an early form of criminal profiling. He wrote assuming the murderer to be such a person. As I have just described he would probably be a man without regular occupation both some small income oh pension this speaks to the fact that he didn't appear to have steady work while at the asylum. Kuzminsky was evaluated. Doctors recorded that he had engaged in public displays of masturbation and had attacked one of his sisters with a knife. The doctors also found that Kozminski suffered from audible hallucinations and was guided by voices. We alluded to this possibility when discussing the four main archetypes of the serial killer. The visionary killer is driven by psychosis like voices or visual hallucinations. Soon not only does Kuzminsky fit the profile of a hedonistic killer. One Who kills for sexual excitement? But due to his psychosis he fits the profile of visionary killer as well yes based on his patient file from the asylum so he fits at least two of the archetypes. We've attributed to Jack The ripper. So whatever happened to Kuzminsky? His mental health continued to deteriorate. He lost a lot of weight because he wouldn't eat. Due to paranoia. He died in an asylum. In Nineteen nineteen at the age of fifty three to other high ranking police officials had also signed off on Kuzminsky as the killer so mcnaughton suspicion was not operating in a vacuum the name Kuzminsky was frequently on the tongues of British investigators and he remains on the tongues of ripper. All the jets and other modern day historians in two thousand fourteen author Russell Edwards presented new forensic evidence in his book Naming Jack. The ripper that seems to link Kuzminsky to the killings and based on his back story and the psychological evidence. We believe. Aaron Kozminski is the most viable suspect listeners. What do you think tell us on? Par Cast facebook page or on twitter at par cast network the name Jack. The ripper has become synonymous with the unsolved serial killer and he has undoubtedly influenced future serial killers. There have been several copycat murders inspired by. Here are two of the most famous from nineteen seventy five to nineteen eighty a serial killer following pretty closely in. Jack. The ripper footsteps killed thirteen women. Several of whom were sex workers and he did it in Yorkshire England which helped Him Garner the name the Yorkshire ripper. His real name is Peter Sutcliffe but he actually now goes bike Peter Kuhnen. He was a loner as an adolescent dropped out of school at fifteen and did a bunch of menial jobs one of which included grave digging as a teenager. He developed a bad habit of being voyeur and would often spy on sex workers and their indiscretions he told authorities that he was on a mission from God to kill sex workers so he was a mission oriented serial killer good or at least that was his claim but another possible explanation is that he wanted to get revenge on sex workers after he had a bad experience with one a sex worker and her pimp apparently tried to swindle money out of him so this experience combined with his history of watching sex workers have sex with their clients was most likely the impetus for his crime spree in one thousand nine hundred eighty one. The Yorkshire ripper was convicted of murdering thirteen women. He's been serving time ever since he's now in his seventies and it's very likely he'll die in prison and then there's Derrick Brown a newspaper Deliveryman from Lancashire England. He not only targeted a sex worker but also stocked. The same street says his predecessor. Boothroyd Brown killed two women in White Chapel. One was a sex worker another a DVD seller. Police were confident that he was indeed trying to emulate Jack. The ripper that discovered that Brown had checked out a library book called killers the most barbaric murderers of our time. They also found a murder kit. Consisting of a bow saw steam cleaner and some waterproof sheeting believed. He chose his victims because he figured they were easy targets and no one would miss them. Forty eight year old brown father of seven had been previously convicted of rape and in two thousand eight. He was convicted of the murders of Zahle migual and Bonnie Barrett and sentenced to life in prison..

That's why we had to go away and you pretend it's fine but you're inwardly resentful then look at your face like it was from within the Queen's resting face just incredibly he said grumpy and take that as a compliment okay. You'll call them. I think you should re write the lyrics to Jerusalem. Hey because as you know we desperate to get you to do lyrics. 'cause I think that your great lyrics and poems and stuff like that. Ah Some of the best thing was a news story a news thing okay so the new store. This is come from is the news that Jerusalem Rousselin is Britain's number-one. Hem in what sense what do you mean is number one so what what does that mean. Is there a chart that chart for him is it up from number three was amazing in Grayson then all creatures written smarter than this praise. The views of songs appraise has voted it their number my favorite him. I thought it's always been the UK the one ever no one gets the remote to shit about Jerusalem until the ashes cricket series in two thousand and five and the crowd started singing it the you know how I bet the number two swing-low-sweet-chariot. That's not really him. Rugby people seeing singlets sweet chariot tricky people in Jerusalem and football people saying saying Shit and you know you are which is which is which they also got from Westminster Abbey. Anyway plotted Blah Blah causes toys being played cricket in sporting things he wouldn't be votive but people in Church people people you gotTa Church vote on things. They just leave it alter. It was a Pope Bhai songs appraise really yeah I think so because praises listened to by reasonably churchgoing people. It's a long story but in your hand story well. It's all about the headline. The headline is what's the school rugby him Jerusalem right so it is it is rather to K- schools school head. Jerusalem isn't it yes but I mean that was quite prepared to realize. I was thinking that it was more important than I mean we didn't. We didn't never school him because they they were living with CBC working so they said they used to sing. Jerusalem ed sort of the end of term but it's also the women's institute. I mean anyone who hasn't really got a song just goes assuming they tear is being an intricate team. It's crappy. Westminster School is the Women's Institute and I. It looks to me like that story what it looks to me from the headline that you've read out. It sounds like they're saying that when hymns of praise have a nice yeah songs of praise have a vote on the on the on the put him what happens is that a him from the rugby gets to be number. One does say was not tate. Wait a second. They say that Jerusalem doesn't feature on the list of the top ten lost time. The survey was conducted in twenty so it reminds didn't the thing I used to have a thing in the in the the funny thing about this bollocks to resume so I used to have a thing when I'm I'm sorry sorry what is what is wrong with him. Jerusalem what is based on a massive pathetic patriotic misconception castigating century imperial imperial delusion and did those two nation times who's feeding. They're talking about yeah walk on endless mountains green so what are the other seventeen lines for aw and was the holy lamb of God on England's. No no not a tool stokely wasn't and was the and did the countenance countenance divine shine forth upon these crowded clouded hills crowded clouded. No didn't Jerusalem build it here now. Nobody it's very hard on the nation's favourite him it was so then the column would be how about because I think in the time starring fascinating mating historical questions to which the answer is no and opened up the Daily Mail and it would say was king author a Phoenician mercenary brought to Britain in changed by the Romans to work in a tin mine and then they have fourteen pet. No thank you by my favorite one was did. Adolf Hitler's bad teeth caused the Holocaust. Two Thousand Years of European shepherd is collapsing bryk mark but they used to try and frame it so ah I remember and I and then I invited readers to what was fascinating question and they would cool the paper and then one of somebody wrote him with added those featuring ancient times no and it's the thing that we could be aversion of Jerusalem to which the offices are all yes so how does it and did those feet ancient times walkabout in Palestine never having heard of England yes and did the countenance divine shine forth upon the Galilee while we were all eating fucking thistles and living in holes in the ground yes and it was the worst to roussel them build it in Israel while we just swung from trees and had sex with our sisters yes and then they sing that in your fucking women's institute right.

Because many of my colleagues former colleagues are still in that situation in Zimbabwe. And indeed I was forced to flee my own country. So it's something that I feel very strongly about an just cannot as as you say pizza commend people highly enough for the incredible that they do in the face of terrible difficulty in Zimbabwe. Across Africa across the world that the area I know about is symbolic way where people are really having to operate under the radar loss of the time and just take insane risks and people have absolutely paid the price and they were seeing press freedom becoming better in Zimbabwe. I'm afraid it's still a very very perilous situation for the media that okay? Thank you. Well, it is a twenty two minutes past the hour. You're listening to the BBC World Service as we've heard throughout this morning. It's one hundred years since the armistice brought the first World War to a close remembrance ceremonies and events are taking place in London. Paris camera and many other cities towns and villages that sent young men to the trenches David Hargreaves used to teach history at Westminster school here in London. And for the past four and a half years. He's been writing a weekly essay based on letters diaries and other documents he's found from the time his essays keep time with the progress of the war. So he's nearly up to the armistice. You can find them all. Online at century journal dot com. He's here with us in the studio, David why did you decide to take on this ambitious product. I think in the broader sense was a wish to a different kind of generational salute. Maybe salutes or other ground word. My researches, and I were keen to acknowledge the extrordinary disruption on the stoicism with which this disruption was endured by whole generation. And we have found it sometimes exhausting, but it's been an extraordinary privilege, and and actually enjoy to do absolutely even covered. Some some fascinating things. I know you've selected for us. A couple of the most powerful documents that you've found the first is by Lieutenant Noel Hudson. So let's hear from a poem that we can hear from him that he wrote in one thousand nine hundred sixteen I that on my familiar hill. Saw with uncomprehending is one hundred of their sunsets. Spill their fresh and sanguine sacrifice. The sun swings. His noonday sword must say goodbye to all of this by all lights that I shall miss helped me to die Lord. It's very moving the other that you've given to us as a letter from an an army chaplain Julian vicar staff it was written at the end of nineteen seventeen of our more intimate time together, I may not speak. He slept peacefully as a child for several hours. Just before the end, I read to him very gently that him which will forever now have a new meaning for me, which was in every line and every word appropriate. Just as I am without one plea. As they bound him. I held his arm tight to reassure him words useless at such a moment. And then he turned his blindfolded face up to mine and set in a voice, which rung, my heart kiss me, sir. Kiss me. And with my kiss on his lips. And God has you in his keeping whispering in his ear? He passed on into the great unseen. Got accept him Christ receive him. I do not think he died in vain. Harry powerful. Can you put that into context rice little yes? The young man had been fighting in France since he was fifteen years of age in nineteen fourteen. He'd fallen foul of the authorities, despite the fact that he had to wind wind stripes. He faced the death penalty h nineteen and you get here. I think an extraordinary example of the cost of war when decisions which are absolutely unconscionable. And indefensible in any other situation were made at a much don't feel confident judging to fierce whether or not this was the the right of the wrong decision on the moment. What I do know is happy Bickerstaff was able to offer that support and comfort. My major. That's a feeling shared by every listener today. I'd like to open up the discussion to bring in my guests. Now, what is? Looking back at this event because everybody who was involved in it. They weren't really soldiers. They were sort of children. I'm sorry sums daughters. People who would have had wonderful careers as businessman or the Oku members of the local community who just dragged there and that sense of. We put on a local church and Chizik. My wife was vicar, the research the. Eight of the congregation research, the thirty three people who died in Michael's church and their stories extraordinarily come to light. And we put a little play. No my wife did. And the local am DRAM. And it was incredibly hope thing to live this grosses based on a local grocer who proudly sends his sons off to war. And then, of course, the tragedies which follow all took place in the church, which they worshipped up exactly a hundred years ago, and somehow it was incredibly powerful, man. I'll never forget that evening when it was beautifully done. And just these the ordinariness of the people who go the high hopes, and then of course, the terrible tragedy, which really make sense of terrible tragedy on both sides. And I wonder then how you. You within your work? I see that you sometimes quote Germans in the absolutely. And I think it's very interesting to see the difference between between the commentary from from both sides. And if it would have been commemorated in a different way had we lost had the allies lost. Gosh. That is a really good question. One of the best counterfactual. I'm sure it would have been commemorated in a different way. I mean tragedy is common. Ubiquitous Mungo protagonists. And I think the Germans and the Australian Garin and the Russians had also experienced civilian depredations and shortages to an extent, which we hadn't that affect perception of exude reteach. I read today's papers at the first. The first day of silence. I one moment of silence here, we think it wasn't. If you street, you heard people weeping is their first chance lamentation because if it had been so terrible and. Okay. Well, thank you very much.

"He would be a devout Christian until his death in sixteen forty two. When lock was only ten, the English civil war broke out. The Puritans unhappy with the lax religious policies of the church of England began to join parliament to oppose the case. The church of England headed by the monarch was the dominant religious organization of the entire country and gave the government immense control over the religious lives of its citizens king, Charles the. I also wanted to rule without parliament when he decided to Levy taxes without their approval. The simmering tensions between the two boiled over and the country plunged into civil war, lock senior, joined a cavalry regiment, started by his employer, Alexander Popham to fight against Charles the English civil war ended in sixteen fifty one with king Charles, the first being deposed and executed in England becoming a Republic under the tarantula, Oliver Cromwell, Charles son, and heir also named Charles went into exile. The war would claim the lives of over two hundred thousand people. Most of whom were civilians being exposed to so much violence as the result of. Religion and Royal tyranny shape the way John Locke viewed the world. But the war also gave lock some unexpected benefits. Popham became a member of parliament, feeling indebted to lock senior for serving with him in the war Popham used his influence to secure lock junior a place at the prestigious Westminster school in London in sixteen forty, six at the age of fourteen lock, left his home in the country and made his way to the nation's capital. The English civil war, which was actually a series of three wars between sixteen forty two and sixteen fifty. One was experiencing a period of peace at this time. However, the looming shadow of this conflict would follow lock on his move to London. Westminster was run by a man named Richard Busby, a staunch royalist who is loyal to the monarchy and opposed to Cromwell's regime his abilities as a headmaster meant that the government overlooked his political leanings, which was highly unusual Busby's influence. Caused locked to lose his unwavering puritan faith in favor of a more liberal worldview during his time at Westminster in order to pay for expenses, he would receive money twice a year from his father, ranging from six pounds to fourteen pounds. That might not sound like a lot. But servants yearly salary at the time could be even less than six pounds life at Westminster school was tough with students live strictly regimented. A typical day included rigorous instruction in classical literature as well as Latin Hebrew Greek and Arabic lock would later be critical of the school's emphasis on rhetoric, the art of persuasive communication. The also did not care for the corporal punishment meted out or the way that schoolboys were rough with each other. He eventually condemned private schooling in favor of private tutoring. His response to his time at Westminster suggests that from an early age, he was naturally sensitive an adverse to conflict in. Sixteen fifty the year locked turned eighteen. He earned a king scholarship which allowed him to live at the school at self. King scholarships were awarded annually through a competitive scholastic exam involving Latin grammar and written composition two years later locked tried for a second scholarship to Christ Church at Oxford. This would require him to compose a speech in Hebrew, Latin or Greek in order to convince the electors to give him a spot. Even at this age, John realized the importance of playing politics. He asked his father and Alexander Popham his father's employer to send letters to the electors and his headmaster to help win their favor. Although his chances seemed good throughout his life lock constantly question his abilities, either out of modesty or as a result of his puritan upbringing. He wrote to his father for advice on what he might do if he didn't get into Oxford, however will never know what advice is. Other might have given as in the spring of sixteen fifty to lock was awarded one of the scholarships to Christ Church..
