"500 Years of Chicano History" Film & Presentation w/ Betita Martinez

Saturday, June 06, 2009
6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Event Type:
Location Details:
Barrios Unidos: 1817 Soquel Ave.

Free Film Screening and Presentation:

Betita Martinez, author, elder and activist, presents the film made as a companion to her book, "500 Years of Chicano History: Viva la Causa."

The film is an introduction to Chican@ history from the point of view of the people who lived it. This film is sympathetic to the issues of oppressed peoples, without flinching for the difficulties facing “el Movimiento” including class, sexism, interracial unity, and homophobia.

This fall marks a decade since the Seattle WTO protests--and this also means it's been almost ten years since Betita Martinez's "Where Was The Color in Seattle"

All ages are welcome.
An event presented by Being John Brown & Barrios Unidos:

The California Coalition of Barrios Unidos began as a community based peace movement in the violent streets of urban California in 1977. Incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1993, the national office of Santa Cruz Barrios Unidos established the mission to prevent and curtail violence amongst youth within Santa Cruz County by providing them with life enhancing alternatives. Over the past twenty-five years Barrios Unidos has developed a model that seeks to reclaim and restore the lives of struggling youth while promoting unity amongst families and neighbors through community building efforts.

Being John Brown is a group of activists committed to challenging white supremacy. We wish to see a world in which white privilege and oppression of people of color have been completely eliminated, and our purpose is to help bring about that world. We believe that white people have a responsibility to actively confront white supremacy, as well as to take action in solidarity with organizing led by people of color. Being John Brown exists in order to organize in our communities for these purposes, and to support activists and organizations with similar goals. Being John Brown is open to anyone who agrees with these principles. beingjohnbrown [at]
