The Chicano Movement used innovations in technology to create media that represented the issues, the faces, and the perspectives of Chicanos. Colorado had a number of Chicano newspapers, including La Cucaracha in Pueblo. La Cucaracha and other newspapers in the Chicano Press Association communicated the news of boycotts, land rights cases, police brutality, labor strikes, protests, legal corruption, and the effects of discrimination.
Join us on Thursday, April 28 at 7 p.m. for the next panel discussion in conjunction with El Movimiento: The Chicano Movement in Colorado and Pueblo. Several reporters and staff from La Cucaracha will discuss working as a newspaper during the movement and covering important events.
The panel discussion is free and open to the public. Discussions are presented by El Pueblo History Museum and CSU-Pueblo.
