My mom is Mexican. Both of her parents were first generation Mexican Americans. All four of her grandparents were born in Mexico. I’ve always been proud of my heritage, but this module made me realize that I have no idea what it is I’m proud of. I didn’t know about the El Paso Bath Riots and what led up to them. I see now that I actually know very little about my Mexican heritage. I think a lot of that has to do with being raised in a White neighborhood, with a White last name, my dad’s Irish facial features, and very little exposure to life as anything other than a White girl. Watching this module triggered something in me - a need to learn about my culture, about my heritage, and about Mexican history. I’m ashamed this isn’t something I’ve already delved into, but I’m ready to do so now.
