The Chicano movement empowered Mexican Americans from all walks of life to celebrate their roots. In the fourth installment of Austin Revealed: Chicano Civil Rights, hear how locals fought criticism and came together to embrace their heritage through the arts.
Austin Revealed: Chicano Civil Rights debuts on Thursdays in March on KLRU.org. Past installments address the rise of Mexican Americans in politics, organizing and activism and the struggle of the Chicano movement as the Mexican-American community in Austin continues to fight for their rights.
KLRU has also partnered with The Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center to present a screening and discussion of the documentary on March 31 as part of their César Chávez celebrations. Find more information about the screening here.
