Eva Longoria has always been an outspoken and proud Latina. She even went back to school a few years ago to get her MA in Chicano Studies and to brush up on her Spanish. We love that she is always so involved in political issues surrounding our community and that she is an outspoken advocate for countless organizations from MALDEF to the NCLR and the campaign to create a National Museum of the American Latino. Here's what she had to say about growing up Latina in Texas.
