Program: Film Screening of “Prejudice and Pride (1965-1980)” and Discussion

Frustrated by the persistent discrimination of the 1960s, Latino Americans organized labor and fashioned a “Chicano” identity with hopes of achieving political equality. Dr. Valerie Mendoza of the American Studies Department at KU will lead the discussion following the short film. The film and discussion leader are provided by the Kansas Humanities Council and the American Libraries Association (ALA) as part of the ALA project “Latino Americans: 500 Years of History.”
Free and open to the public.
