Walkout – Essaylink

 

What does the teacher in the film Walkout mean when he tells his students that “you have lost your legacy”?

He is explaining to the students the fact that their history has been kept out of the pages of the history books. Sadly, the publishers of the textbook make no mention of the contributions that Mexican-Americans made during the Civil War or the sacrifices they made on behalf of America (and Texas).
