Episode Five - “Prejudice and Pride”
Monday, April 18 | 6 pm | Sinclair Auditorium
This episode begins in the 1960s and 1970s when a generation of Mexican Americans, frustrated by persistent discrimination and poverty, find a new way forward through social action and the building of a new “Chicano” identity. Watch as activists fight for change and see how Chicano activism and identity have transformed what it means to be an American. 
Discussion following each film screening by a faculty member of the Latin American Studies Program.
