Oral History Interview with Eloy Padilla on July 19, 2018

Description: Even though Eloy Padilla lived in a neighborhood under the jurisdiction of Del Rio ISD, he and his brother transferred voluntarily to San Felipe, which they considered to have a more welcoming environment. He recalled being passed over for opportunities in Del Rio school sports due to his ethnicity. After finishing high school, Padilla went to UT in the 60s and quickly became involved in Chicano activism; he was one of the first members of MASO, and joined their activities in and out of campus. He recalled joining a protest and boycott against the racist owner of a Conoco station in Austin, and being taken to jail with other MASO members. While attending UT, he traveled to Del Rio with other MASO/MAYO members to take part in the Palm Sunday march of 1969. After leaving UT without finishing his degree and a brief stint in Puerto Rico (his parents wanted to take him away from activism), Padilla resumed his professional career, finishing college and later working as a teacher and journalist. Padilla returned to activism while working with Texas Rural Legal Aid; he received a law degree from Texas Southern University, and became an attorney with the TRLA Del Rio office. While he litigated many different cases, he spoke at length about Cazares v. Val Verde County, a voting rights case (see metadata for Jovita Cazares).
