This week we'll be focusing on Chicanx/Latinx activism starting with a jigsaw where we'll research and present our findings to the class on six key moments of Latinx organizing:
Emma Tenayuca and the Pecan Shellers Strike
LULAC and Mendez v. Westminster
Cesar Chavez, Dolores Huerta, and the United Farm Workers
The 1968 East L.A. Walkouts
The National Chicano Moratorium
The Brown Berets and the Young Lords
Afterwards we'll watch Precious Knowledge and discuss the battle over Ethnic Studies courses brewing across the country.
