AUSTIN: Researcher Needed for PBS Documentary About Mex-Amer Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s

From Pamela Mann


We need a researcher to do a day or two (or maybe more) of picture and document research for A CLASS APART, a new documentary for PBS about the Hernandez v. Texas Supreme Court case of 1954 and the post WWII Mexican American civil rights movement. A CLASS APART is directed by Carlos Sandoval (“Farmingville”) and is a production of Camino Bluff Productions. More info about the film is at

We’re in the middle of editing the film and are looking for some images (photos, documents, etc.) to help bring the story to life. We’re in New York City and it’s hard for us to come to Texas, so we’re hoping to hire a student or other Austin-based researcher who can find us what we need in the Benson Latin American Collection and possibly other parts of the University of Texas Library. We will provide very specific guidance and a reasonable stipend for the work.
