The Chicano Blowouts Of 1968

50 years ago, a group of students in East L.A. led a series of walkouts that resulted in change to the education system that many thought was impossible.

Professor Isidro Ortiz of SDSU's Chicana/o Studies Dept. discusses the rise and legacy of the Chicano Blowouts for educational justice and against unequal conditions and racism in Los Angeles high schools.
