    Kelly Lytle Hernández in Reno Gazette-Journal: “Opinion: While Nevada makes anti-racism history, Biden administration pushes back”

    To speak to the 1929 law, Gorman presented the testimony of Professor Kelly Lytle Hernández, the Thomas E. Lifka Chair of History at UCLA. Professor Lytle Hernández recounted the anti-Mexican sentiment pervading America during what historians describe as the “tribal ’20s,” including the “Juan Crow” regime, a racialized system of legal oppression of Latinos in the U.S. mirroring Jim Crow laws targeting Black Americans in the south.
