Hidden Voices: The ‘Passionate Life’ of Dr. Antonia Pantoja

Throughout the 2021–22 school year, The Morning Bell will feature individuals from our Hidden Voices series, the NYC Department of Education's collaboration with the Museum of the City of New York that highlights important people from American history who have been "hidden" from traditional historical records. In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, we're kicking off our Hidden Voices series by featuring Dr. Antonia Pantoja, one of the country's most influential civil rights and education leaders of the 20th Century.
