Abstract:

This is a historical collection of eight videotapes that were acquired in 3/4 inch U-Matic format and document important Chicano historical events such as Chicano cultural arts performances in theater and music as well as Chicano protest marches.

Subjects include the Chicano Moratorium, which was the largest and most important Chicano protest march against the war in Vietnam; the August 1973 March on Sacramento called La Marcha de la Reconquista; the ending of the Cesar Chavez 1988 fast; the very early work of the Chicano music group Los Lobos, later made famous by Luis Valdez's motion picture La Bamba; the Chicano poet/artist Jose' Montoya of the Royal Chicano Air Force.
