Chicano Struggle in San Diego- Jan to May 20, 2016

Unidos por la Causa 
The Chicana and Chicano Experience in San Diego 
Art Exhibit at the LRC / City College Library 

The exhibit displays photographs, art, and historic documents illustrating the early years of the Chicano movement for social justice and civil rights in San Diego. The exhibit includes a rich and vivid presentation of a selection of 62 movement related posters and broadsides produced in the 1960s and 1970s promoting anti-war marches, UFW protests, student conferences and many other cultural and political events, demonstrating the movement's struggle for equal education and its resistance to injustice. 

Unidos Por la Causa is a guide to some of the most seminal events in San Diego's Chicana/o history, including those which helped to shape the community during the 1960's and 1970's. The exhibit draws upon materials held in Special Collections and University Archives. These collections, many of which have only recently been acquired, include the Arturo Casares Papers, the Enriqueta Chavez Papers, the Chicana and Chicano Studies Department Records, the Chicano Federation of San Diego County Records, the Leonard Fierro Papers, the Maria Garcia Papers, MANA of San Diego County Records, the Rene Nuñez Papers, and others.
