The existing edition (Volume I) of the book 500 Years of Chicano History covers 500 years ending in 1990. That was 26 years ago. As you know a lot has happened since then that has affected the lives of our people.
We need to learn about and share these stories of our communities during the last 26 years. If we don’t write our own stories, someone else may do it for us.
Your help and contributions of materials will help us bring this history up to date.
We need help:
- Identifying and contacting groups involved in the Chicano social justice movement from 1990-present time
- Gathering photos and stories from people involved in the movement between 1990 and present time
Along with the updated book and video, we are also preparing to add an online tool that will allow the global Chicano community to engage in telling their stories of the past 26, 500, and 1,000 years.
Adelita Medina, the coordinator of this project, is a long-time activist in various struggles for social justice and peace, is working with us to collect those stories and videos. We’ve reached out to communities across the country, including Chicano Studies programs in universities and high schools, cultural curators, community organizers, youth, elders, and our own members.
