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.


Carlos Manuel Haro is a postdoctoral scholar-in-residence at the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center (CSRC). Retired in 2008 as the assistant director of the CSRC, Dr. Haro served as coordinator of the annual CSRC Latina/o Education Summit series from 2006-2015. As a postdoctoral scholar at the CSRC, he undertakes and directs specific education research projects and assists with the research and fellowship programs of the CSRC.


WALKOUT! is sponsored by East Los Angeles College, Department of Chicana/o Studies, and the Vincent Price Art Museum. All images are courtesy of the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center.
