AARP members are invited to The Chicano Movement Yesterday and Today , a community discussion on the impact of Colorado’s Chicano Movement at the History Colorado Center on Tuesday, February 24, 2015 at 6:00 p.m.
What was the Chicano movement about? How was El Movimiento shaped by Chicana/o identity. What role did identity play in developing and sustaining the Chicano Movement? Is El Movimiento alive today, and if so what is its relationship to the current student movement on race and educational disparity?
Panelist include Dr. Luis Torres, deputy provost for academic and student affairs at MSU Denver; Al Gurule, past gubernatorial candidate for La Raza Unida; Nita Gonzales, president and CEO of Escuela Tlatelolco; and Shirley Otero, co-founder of the Land Rights Council, an organization dedicated to regaining the rights for the heirs of the Sangre de Cristo Land Grant.
Moderated by Ramon Del Castillo, Chair of the Chicana/o Studies Department at Metropolitan State University of Denver.
