Orange H.S. Students Immerse Themselves In ‘Lemon Grove Incident’ History

Orange Grove High School Students Travel to Lemon Grove To Hear ‘The Lemon Grove Incident’ Story As Told By Helen Ofield

Students from Ms. Natalia Navarro’s Chicano and Latin American History Class traveled to Lemon Grove on January 14th to see the Lemon Grove Incident Mural on Broadway Avenue and hear Helen Ofield’s superb talk on the 1931 famous civil rights case.
LGHS Board member Robert Bulling was on hand for questions and noted “We could not have had a nicer group of students visit the mural, quiet but alert, they politely listened to this important Lemon Grove story and asked great questions.”  The teachers were thrilled to learn how the parents fought against the segregation the School Board tried to impose on them.
