Texas History:
The main character in "The Scholarship Jacket" is a Mexican-American girl who lives in Texas.
The history of Tejanos, or Texas Mexicans, dates back more than 200 years.
As early as 1731, Tejanos established a ranch community in what was then northeastern Mexico.
About 100 years later, Mexico invited immigrants from the U.S. to settle in the region.
The Tejanos and the immigrants eventually joined forces to fight for their independence from Mexico, and in 1845, Texas became part of the U.S.
Mexicans continued migrating to Texas, but they often faced discrimination.
Today, over seven million residents of Texas are Mexican Americans.
