VIVA LA CAUSA: 500 Years Of Chicano History

Part One of the video depicts Mexican Americans from their pre-Columbian origins through Spanish colonization, the U.S. take over of today's Southwest in 1848, the people’s resistance, workers creating great wealth, and their massive strikes, up to World War II. Part Two includes the 1943 "Zoot Suit Riots," and early efforts to fight discrimination, the farmworkers' struggle, student protests, the Chicano Moratorium against the U.S. war in Vietnam, and new Chicano art. Today's Latino struggles bring the video up to date.
Sponsored by New College of California’s Activism and Social Change Program.
