The Lemon Grove Incident is a compelling and informative presentation of how the members of the local school board in Lemon Grove, California, attempted to implement de jure segregation of American citizens of Mexican American descent in 1930. The narratives of actual participants -- victims in the incident -- enhance the authenticity of the presentation and guide the viewer through the convoluted Machiavellianism of the Lemon Grove School Board and its supporting satellites, the Lemon Grove Parent Teacher Association (PTA) and Chamber of Commerce as well as the federal government.
