FRESNO– Premiere Screening: Chicano Legacy of Fresno County: Unjust Practices and Lethal Consequences

November 4, 2017 @ 1:00 pm4:00 pm

Free

FRESNO– Premiere screening: Chicano Legacy of Fresno County:  Unjust Practices and Lethal Consequences.  Through the oral testimony of several life-long Chicano rights activists, advocates and supporters, the interplay between the Chicano community of Fresno, County and law enforcement is examined.

A special preview video screening of Chicano Legacy of Fresno County:  Unjust Practices and Lethal Consequences will be presented in the auditorium at Fresno City College, Fresno, California.  Through the oral testimony of several life-long Chicano rights activists, advocates and supporters, the interplay between the Chicano community of Fresno County and law enforcement is examined.  Chicano advocates, activists and supporters interviewed for this project received an early education in El  Movimiento (The Cause),  from the Community Services Organization era to marching with Cesar Chavez as youth.  Although their interviews were rich with varied life experiences, the segments provided in this presentation deal explicitly with the Chicano community and Fresno County law enforcement. Their involvement in advancing Chicano civil rights makes their insight of utmost importance and value both to the Mexican American community and our larger American society.

 Cost:  This event is free and open to the public.
