César Chávez Day: An Artbound La Raza Special

Date and Time

Wednesday, March 31, 2021 - 8:00pm


In collaboration with KCET, the Luckman Fine Arts Complex at Cal State LA is proud to present a one-time stream of ARTBOUND: La Raza.  
In East Los Angeles during the late 1960s and 1970s, a group of young activists used creative tools like writing and photography as a means for community organizing, providing a platform for the Chicano Movement in the form of the bilingual newspaper/magazine La Raza. In the process, the young activists became artists themselves and articulated a visual language that shed light on the daily life, concerns and struggles of the Mexican American experience in Southern California and provided a voice to the Chicano civil rights movement. The archive of nearly 25,000 images defined pivotal moments, key players and the symbols of Chicano activism.
