Oral History Interview with Lillie Aleman, July 11, 2016

Description: Lillie Ann Aleman was born in 1942 in Forth Worth and would migrate to Galveston when she was four years old. Her father, Pedro Enriquez, was a WWII veteran who became active in the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) Council #151 and defended equal employment opportunities. Aleman would become active in LULAC after her mother, Tomasa Lozano Enriquez, co-founded LULAC women's council #639 and encouraged Aleman to become involved. She talks about instances of discrimination while growing-up on the island, how LULAC merged the councils in 1999, how she was designated as "LULAC Woman of the Year" due to her participation in several initiatives, how she became president of the merged LULAC council, and her engagement in cross-racial efforts to address affordable housing after Hurricane Ike. Aleman also speaks about voting rights, youth programs, and national LULAC's political agenda.
