Felix Longoria, a decorated Mexican American soldier, was killed in battle during World War II. But when his body came home to Three Rivers, Texas in 1945, the only funeral home in town refused to handle his burial. “The whites wouldn’t like it,” they told his widow. Nationwide outrage sparked the beginning of Latinos as a political force in the U.S.

In recognition of National Hispanic Heritage Month, the Center for the Healing of Racism will screen the The Longoria Affair.
