History Colorado will open the exhibit El Movimiento: The Chicano Movement in Colorado on February 7, 2015, immersing visitors in the urgency, passion and vitality of one of Colorado’s most important social movements. In the 1960s and 1970s, Chicano activists in Colorado—an important center of the Chicano movement—fought to end discrimination, secure rights and gain political and social power through education, culture and the arts. El Movimiento uses artifacts, images, and the voices of Chicano activists to tell about the struggle for labor rights, the founding of the Crusade for Justice, student activism in Colorado schools, the Vietnam War, land rights, and other topics. Community advisors from across the state created El Movimiento in collaboration with museum staff. The Museo de las Americas will open a companion exhibit called CHICANO on February 12.
