Raza Si! Chicano Activism in Washington State Powerpoint with video segments

The Chicano movement emerged in two locales in the 1960s: in the Yakima Valley, which was home to most of the state's Latinos, and in Seattle and especially the University of Washington, where Chicano students launched many new initiatives. Reflecting the split geography, the movement linked together campaigns to organize and support farmworkers with projects that served urban communities and educational agendas. This slide show tells the story of Chicano activism across forty years. It includes short videotaped interviews with veterans of MEChA, Brown Berets, United Farmworkers, El Centro de la Raza, and other organizations.

Video segments best viewed with Internet Explorer.
