SKU: 9781519355263 Category: Tag: Product ID: 1047606


Chicano Homeland tells the dynamic story of the movement for the rights of Mexican-Americans. Focusing on the Chicano movement at its epicenter in Los Angeles, author Louis R. Negrete brings to life the issues that triggered this wide-ranging civil rights movement – police brutality, institutionalized poverty, demands for better schools, opposition to the war in Vietnam, and defense of undocumented immigrants. He blends personal experiences and eyewitness accounts with stories of the many leaders, organizations, and successful political strategies. Negrete provides a vision of how a new generation of activists – who represent the largest minority voting block in the country –might revive this crucial human rights movement.
