Sal Castro and the Chicano Struggle for
May 3, 2012
Room H 117
Dr. Mario Garcia and Sal Castro will discuss their recently published book Blowout! Sal Castro and the Chicano Struggle for Educational Justice at Mesa College on Thursday, May 3, 2012 in room H-117/118 at 9:35AM-11AM. Based on oral history, this book is the life-story of a remarkable high school teacher, Sal Castro, who in 1968 inspired the Chicano students of the East Los Angeles public schools to stage a massive walkout to protest years of school discrimination and educational inequality that affected Mexican American students. These walkouts came to be known as the “blowouts” and represent a seminal event of the Chicano Movement of that era. A book signing will follow the presentation.
Mario T. García is professor of Chicana/o studies and adjunct professor in history and religious studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Sal Castro is an American educator and activist.
