VIVA LA RAZA!


Civil rights and labor activist Yolanda Alaniz will talk about her new book, Viva la Raza: A History of Chicano Identity and Resistance, which describes monumental labor battles, surveys the vibrant movement of the 1960s and 70s, and focuses unique attention on women and Latina/o lesbians and gays.

The volume is co-authored with Megan Cornish and has a foreword by the esteemed Chicana/o Studies Professor and historian Rodolfo Acuna.

A festive Mexican supper will be served at 6:00pm for a $9.00 donation.
