The story of Chicano identity is rooted in Mexican-American history and the struggle for civil rights. Two UCSD professors explore the origin and motivation of the Chicano movement through immigration, race, ethnicity, inequality and assimilation.
- Jorge Mariscal, director of the Chicano Studies Program at UC San Diego. His latest book is Brown-Eyed Children of the Sun: Lessons from the Chicano Movement.
- Tomás Jiménez , Assistant Professor of Sociology at UCSD. His research focuses on immigration, race, ethnicity, inequality, assimilation, and the Mexican-origin population in the U.S.
