Panel Discussion: Chicano Media and La Cucaracha in Pueblo, Colorado (4/28/16)

Chicano Media

Chicano Media



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.

  1. The amazing thing to me is that we are letting the people in Puerto Rico decide if they want to become a state instead of asking the people of the United States if they want Puerto Rico to become a state. Unbelievable.

    Cucaracha Staff,
    I visited the Newspaper many years ago in Pueblo. I am now a professor at the University of Texas at Rio Grande Valley in Edingburg, Texas.
    As a lifetime activist in the Chicano Movement, me and other community members are organizing a conference of Chicano activist this coming March 24, 2018 at the above mentioned university.
    It is important that some of you attend. We have no money for travel or expenses. If David is still around, let him know that I am personally inviting him. We need imput from la Raza de Colorado!
    Fuerza y Fortalesa,
    Jose M. Villarreal
