I Want to Go to School: The Case of Tape vs. HurleyOur featured History Alive! program is “I Want to Go to School: The Case of Tape vs. Hurley.” In 1885 Mamie Tape’s parents wanted their 8 year old daughter to attend Spring Valley Primary School in San Francisco. When school Principal Jennie Hurley denied the child admission because Mamie was Chinese, the Tape family sued Jennie Hurley and the San Francisco School District. The case Tape vs. Hurley became one of the most important civil rights decisions in American history.
