EDUCA Radio: Chicano Movement in Colorado

EDUCA Radio Show: Chicano Movement in Colorado

Tune in to EDUCA Radio from 3-4 p.m. this Friday, December 1 and listen to Ricardo LaFore, Colorado native and community activist, share the history of the Chicano Movement in Colorado.

The Chicano Rights Movement started with many Mexican-Americans in the United States being drafted into the Vietnam War, where they were put on the front lines, resulting in many of their deaths.  Among communities of color, a collective consciousness grew that sparked a national response to racism in all of its institutionalized forms: education, healthcare, housing, military service, labor and the electoral process.  Join us to learn more about this rich history of our state.

Listen to the interview online by clicking here or tune in to EDUCA Radio 1090 AM at 3 p.m. this Friday. Participants could win the #DiscoverMiTierra Passport that includes one free family visit, of up to five family members, to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, Denver Zoo, Butterfly Pavilion, Denver Botanic Gardens, Denver Art Museum, History Colorado Center and Museo de las Americas.
