Huerta Movies & Conversations
Time: Friday, February 24, 2017 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM PST
Location: Casa Huerta Lounge
Since Casa Dolores Huerta is one of the Chicanx/Laitnx themed houses at Oakes, residents are invited to watch two films: Cesar Chavez, and Walkout!, which depict two civil rights issues from the Chicano Movement (1960's); agricultural workers rights, and educational equality. Following the films, residents are invited to engage in conversation regarding these films; historical representation, historical implications, and Chicanx/Latinx representation. While attempting to answer the following questions: How do we see the Chicano Movement's activist efforts replicated today? How does this movement live in 2017?
