La Raza Unida Milestone.
Dr. José Ángel Gutiérrez, one of the iconic leaders of the Chicano rights movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s, along with Cesar Chavez, Reies López Tijerina, and Corky Gonzales, reflects on the legacy of the La Raza Unida Party, fifty years after its first state convention in San Antonio, TX. He also comments on the current fight for voting rights in Texas, the craddle of La Raza Unida and currently ground zero for the national gerrymandering battle. He gives his take on the Democratic and Republican parties, the years-long political quagmire on immigration reform, the efforts to engage Millenial and Gen Z voters, and his latest book on FBI’s dirty work to watch, discredit and destroy the pioneers of Chicano civil rights.
Guest: Jose Angel Gutiérrez, Attorney, Professor of Political Science at the University of Texas at Arlington, founding member of the Mexican American Youth Organization (MAYO), and founding member and past president of La Raza Unida Party, Redlands, CA.
