Join UCLA Professor Emeritus Dr. Carlos Manuel Haro, as he presents a slideshow of never-before-seen photographs from the 1968 East L.A. walkouts.

This special event commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Chicana/o student walkouts—the first of their kind to confront injustice and inequity in the United States public school system.
