March 7 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Wednesday, March 7 at 6 PM at UCSB MultiCultural Center
Hosted by the MultiCultural Center and the UCSB Center for Black Studies Research.
Symbols of Resistance illuminates the untold stories of the Chican@ Movement with a focus on events in Colorado and New Mexico. The film engages student activism; the effect of police repression and how issues of identity, land and community still resonate in the Chican@ struggles of today. Through interviews with those who shaped the movement and rare historical footage, “Symbols of Resistance” offers a window into a dynamic moment in history and movement building.
Filmmakers Claude Marks and Nathaniel Moore of Freedom Archives will show their documentary on the student movement that raised the conscience of a nation and brought down massive state repression and police brutality.
