Chicano Activism and Immigration
Monday, 11 Feb 2019 at 7:00 pm – South Ballroom, Memorial UnionJimmy Patiño, an assistant professor of Chicano & Latino Studies at the University of Minnesota, is the author of Raza Sí, Migra No: Chicano Movement Struggles for Immigrant Rights in San Diego. His work presents the perspectives of working-class Mexican-American and Mexican immigrant communities at the border and how different activist organizations from the late 1960s to the mid-1980s debated the problem of undocumented immigration. A native of Houston, Texas, Patiño recalls a childhood of hearing from his grandparents about growing up during the era of Mexican–American segregation, which in part inspired his work on Chicano activism. He earned his PhD from the University of California, San Diego.
