        Voter Mobilization in Texas

        San Antonio's Henry B. Gonzalez set new precedents as a state legislator and later a member of Congress. He fought off a segregaton backlash and held big dreams for his community. But for a new generation of Chicano activists, like José Luis Gutierrez, this approach was too slow. South Texas becomes home to the newly formed La Raza Unida party. By focusing on voter registration and correcting gerrymandering, Willie Velasquez finds a third way between the gradualism of Gonzalez and the radicalism of Gutierrez.
