Summary
This is a four part television series documentary. It premiered nationally on PBS in April 1996. The program consists of four one-hour episodes. Episode 1 examines the events at Tierra Amarilla, New Mexico, that sparked a national movement for social justice. It focuses on the 1967 struggle by Mexican Americans to regain ownership of New Mexico lands guaranteed them by the 1848 Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo and then visits the landmark Denver Youth Conference in 1969. The episode concludes with the Chicano Moratorium March against the Vietnam War, held in East Los Angeles in 1970...an event that turned into a tragic riot resulting in the death of renowned journalist Ruben Salazar. Episode 2 examines the efforts of farmworkers to form a national labor union under the leadership of César Chávez. Episode 3 documents the Mexican-American struggle to reform an educational system that failed to properly educate Chicano students. Episode 4 focuses on the emergence in Texas of Mexican-American political power and the creation of a third political party, La Raza Unida
