Always Do the Reading
Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend it because it shows the hardships that not only the Chicano had to face but as the women and queer people had to face as well. It showed that Cesar Chavez, Rudolfo "Corky" Rodriguez, Saul Castro were not the only people behind these movements. That there was women who contributed heavily like Paula Crisostomo, Dolores Huerta, and many more women and many more queer people that put many hours into the Chicano Movement but have yet been recognized.
The highlights was that the professor was able to bring in the actual person, Chava from Voces Innocentes to speak with us and talk about himself and his life after leaving El Salvador during their civil war. Another important highlight was that he was to bring in Meagan Hockaday's family which was very emotional experience for the class learning that there was still police injustice in this society that we live in. This course has opened my eyes as a Chicano that we have been given the crumbs of the crumbs and saw the adversity that the people before me had to face for equality.
