I just watched “Walkout”. It is on HBO. It is about the youth who walked out demanding their rights as Chicano students in 1968…East Los Angeles. What a powerful story.

How Inspiring. By Fall 1969 Chicano enrollment at UCLA increased from 40 to 1200. Nationally from 2% to 25%. That is a testament to the power of expressing OUR political power.
