La Cultura y El Movimiento: Juanita Dominguez

A woman of culture and compassion, Juanita Dominguez contributed much to the Chicano Movement of the 1970s. She wrote “Yo Soy Chicano”— the movement song that accompanied so many activities and occasions throughout the Southwest—and published numerous articles about her community. Poet and educator Flor Lovato will expand on Juanita Dominguez’s contributions both prior to and during the movement.
