T-shirts promoting the second annual Texas Menudo Cookoff on October 21, 1989, in a
photo that appeared in the September 20, 1989, Victoria Advocate. The cookoff was just
one of several events staged by various local organizations to raise money for college schol-
arships for Mexican American students. Education was seen by Victoria's Mexican
American community as one of the most powerful vehicles for bringing about meaningful
social change. Photograph courtesy the Victoria Advocate.
