Organización Latino American (OLA) presenting ‘Walkout’

Please join OLA at 6 p.m. March 21 in the Christie Theatre of the University Union to view the film “Walkout.” This movie tells a story of the 1968 walkout led by high school Chicano students in East Los Angeles protesting academic prejudice conditions. Students were forbidden from speaking Spanish in class or from using the restrooms during lunchtime. Schools taught a curriculum that largely ignored or denied Mexican-American history and Chicano students were steered toward menial labor and away from college by counselors and school officials.
