The Self Determination of the Chicanx-Mexicano Identity is the second in a series of San José-focused intergenerational pláticas about the history of the Chicano Moratorium & what it symbolizes today for the present Chicanx, Xicanx, Latinx comunidad.

The history of our identity, its evolution and the struggle for self-determination are important topics that bring diverse perspectives within our comunidad. This event will showcase an intergenerational platica on what it means to be Chicanx by San Jose residents, elders, youth, and other intersectional identities.

We will also feature a presentation by Nannette Regua, co-author of Mexicans in San José (Images of America), who will share the history of the “Fiesta Fiasco”, a 1969 protest of the City’s Fiesta de las Rosas.

Opening Indigenous Palabra by Yaohuazincuatl and words by Guillermo Tlacayaotzin Suarez.

Co MCs: Isaac Lara and Maria Citlalmina Ortiz
