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.

For more information, contact Professor Ralph Armbruster-Sandoval at armbrust@chicst.ucsb.edu or Professor Diane Fujino, CBSR director, at fujino@ucsb.edu or 805.893.3914 or the MultiCultural Center at 805.893.8411.
