        LA Walkouts

        In response to poor educational opportunities, students and teachers in Los Angeles begin to organize in the late 1960s. Teacher Sal Castro reflects back on the formative experience of seeing his family split up through the involuntary deportations of the 1930s. This informs his resolve to ensure better conditions for a new generation of students. Student activists reflect on the sense of empowerment and accomplishment that came through claiming Chicano identity and taking action.
