Anagram is right about the authorship. It is the official motto of the Universidad Nacioanl Autónoma de México, and as such, should not be translated.

the spirit will speak for my race


Explanation:
Another way would be " the spirit will speak for my people." just see the context. More than legal jargon, it looks like a spiritual leader talking about his race or people.

disagree  lenkiux: The translation is to literal, I think rearranging the words would be better, like "The spirit for my race will speak"

The spirit will speak for my people/race


Explanation:
I think it is a phrase by José Vasconcelos, Mexican writer and politician (PLEASE CORRECT ME IF I AM WRONG). I know for a fact that this phrase is used in all correspondence by the UNAM (universidad nacional autónoma de México) at the end of a letter underneath the signature for example. So a literal translation (with our without explanation - depending on the context) will do. Hope this helps.
