Minerva Delgado, a Mexican American Girl attending Mina Ward, a school exclusively for Hispanic 1st-7th graders, was denied the ability to attend an anglo school. In 1948, a federal lawsuit was filed on behalf of a group of Mexican Americans against Bastrop Independent School District to end segregation. The courts ruled in favor of the group which ended legal segregation of Mexican Americans in Texas.

The City of Bastrop is sponsoring a mural to portray the journey and lasting impacts of Minerva and this historic lawsuit.
