La Raza Historical Society of Santa Clara Valley plans to have an annual week of programs that revisit our history during the Chicano Movement era.
The Latino community that we have today has evolved from these early efforts. These Raza events are meant to help ALL the community understand the contributions that Chicanos made to having our great progressive community of today.
We believe that Roosevelt Park is very important in the history of Raza community activism and activities at Theodore Roosevelt Jr. High evolved into the civil rights struggle of the Chicano Movement Era of the 1960’s and 1970’s.
This is one of the reasons we are recommending the name Sofia Mendoza Middle School for the Burnett site.
- San Jose Activist Joaquin “Jack” Brito describes the events that took place at that time.
